Micheline Gravel is truly an avid button collector!  She is a member of the National Button Society, and a member of the Ottawa Valley Button Club in Canada.

Needless to say, her store, inspiredwithbuttons is filled with unusual buttons made from different materials. There are buttons made from brass, mother of pearl shells, glass, wood, lucite, ceramics and with crystals.  It is an Aladdin's cave full of button treasures!

The large one one featured above is a vintage Bakelite one.  Some of her antique buttons date back to the Victorian era. Shown here are my favorites from her vintage and antique collections.

Depending on their size, the buttons can be used as jewelry clasps in bracelets. See links below for some tutorials.  Larger ones can be converted to pendants with some wire work.
