I fell in love with this button the moment I pulled it out of the package. Now, my problem is that the back is just as beautiful as the front. It will be kind of hard to decide. Nature is a Master and this button is a great example: a true work of art. I will decide which side to use when I finish the alpaca handbag I am crocheting. I confess I am inclined to use the back side as the front, since it is just beautiful and intriguing to look at!!! Thanks, Jimmy Beans Wool, I am absolutely positive that this button will complement my handbag perfectly.
