My grandmother had a collection of thimbles that she gave me a few years before she passed away. They have been in a drawer in my jewelry box for about 10 years.
I think my grandmother must have used this one so much that her needle went completely through the top of it. I had seen a few thimble necklaces on Pinterest, so I thought it would be fun to make a necklace for my sis for Christmas. I began with this thimble and then added other things that were special and sentimental to our family.
I also have a wonderful vintage button collection, so I added some of them to the necklace and made a separate shorter necklace that could be worn with the thimble necklace. I used one of my mother of pearl buttons. (Beautiful button, but did not photograph very well…)
For Christmas, My Aunt sent me one of my other grandmother’s thimbles, so I am going to make a thimble necklace for myself. I just loved the one I made for my sis. Now I am totally hooked on button and thimble jewelry!
Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell
