Cindy Wimmer recently posted a quick and easy button pendant tutorial. HERE.
Got me thinking about my small stash of buttons. I love buttons.
Even have a Buttons, Buttons Pinterest board. HERE, if you’re interested.
Cindy’s adorable samples
I rediscovered two very pretty clear ones in my button box that look like cut glass.
One was paired with a faceted crystal drop for a simple lariat style necklace.
Since these pretties seemed to have a vintage flair, I dug out a sterling plated spoon handle thingie I had played around with awhile ago. I had sawed off the spoon end and tried to smash it flat for a pendant. A total wreck. Threw that away.
I had better luck with the handle end. Flattened the end and used some mighty force to bend the end into a bail. It went into a drawer for a year until I found it yesterday.
Thought it just might pair nicely with the button.
And I probably should not be sharing this next item with you…
because if you all play along, it might decrease my chances of winning some of these goodies
from the Art Jewelry Elements team.
My better nature prevailed!
They are hosting seven days of give aways starting today…Whoot!
Seven days of artisan made components to create with.
Today there are two chances to win…
