Susan Beal’s Button It Up is a gorgeous book, filled with buttony eye-candy, as well as how-tos for all kinds of great projects! It starts out with button history, style, and types, and then we’re given a techniques section with great illustrations showing everything we need to know to make jewelry, sew, and glue with vintage buttons… Then on to the projects! Page after page of gorgeously photographed button necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, and more jewelry.
