Dear Dorothy,
A bracelet for you -- made of buttons! We made it here -- and I assure you that every button was tried here and there before it was sewn in just the right cluster!

It all started this way. A friend gave me a bracelet of silver buttons and I thought it so beautiful that I decided to make one for you. I hope you have fun wearing this button bracelet which contains its own individual glamour and comes to you from the pastoral hills of Wisconsin
