...kate's magic! i stopped in to visit with kate yesterday at her way cool studio atthe foundry, i have always been a ferocious button collectorand came across these buttons at an antique mall near my home a few weeks ago...can you see where this is going? i remembered to grab them and bring them with me to show kate,and,in a matter of minutes, while we talked she created this soooo verrry bitchin' necklace for me! i LOVE it! don't you just love it?! it looks really great with the button bracelet that i bought from her a couple of months ago! thanks,kate....you rock!
