Treasures from Bead & Button: Art By Amy

There was this crazy booth at Bead & Button, Art By Amy, which was filled with all sorts of really unusual trinkets that were either retro/antique or made to look old or made with vintage materials.  There was jewelry dripping everywhere, it was almost overwhelming, but still very alluring and attractive.  Lots of lace, rhinestones, chain, and baubles everywhere.  I wandered into the booth a few times, and on the final day of the show, picked out a few vintage trinkets to take home for Alex.  I loved the little functioning cap gun toy pendant and the expandable telescope that had real lenses in them that sort of work.  I got the tiny hourglass for myself.  I really love jewelry components that actually function in some way, like all of these things, so they were the perfect little souvenirs from the show.
