The start of a beautiful friendship

Hello world!

I am Angela Lee.  I started making jewelry and accessories out of buttons and zippers earlier this year. 

It started when I made a visit to one of my favorite overpriced stores in the mall.  I saw a bunch of their necklaces and hair accessories and thought to myself, "oh these are so cute!"  then I would look at the price tags and think, "oooh, maybe not so cute." And put them back.  But as I was walking out of the store, I thought, "Hey!  I could make that same look with buttons and ribbon."  So I went home and dug out some buttons and some ribbons and put together my first necklace.

And so it began.  I started making a new necklace every weekend as a way to unwind from my day job.  Then something sad happened.  I lost my day job.  So I was very stressed and needed a way to unwind when I was stressed out too much from my current situation.  So I went to my crafting table.  I started making a lot of different stuff.  And that is when I started incorporating zippers into my designs as well.

I felt like I was all over the place with my ideas.  I felt like I needed to stick to one thing and that was it, but honestly, I have.  Fasteners. 

So come with me on this journey and learn how I come up with my designs.  I am going to be sharing some tips and tricks on how I make my stuff.
