Carnival Glass Buttons and Jewlery

Particularly during the 1980s - early ‘90s, there were several individuals who created various pieces of jewelry, using antique buttons. These were sold at carnival glass conventions and meetings.
There is no written “history” surrounding such items, but we decided viewers would enjoy using their imagination and appreciation of the artistic talent portrayed in each item.

Dean & Diane Fry, Sept. 2013

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us,
and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus,
the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself,
lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.
You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. (Hebrews 12:1-4)
