I have made button bracelets and rings, but never attempted a larger piece. The minute I read about this tutorial from Yellow Blackbird I knew I had to try one for myself!
Aubree discovered a button necklace over at Lenora Dame for $70! Here it is:
Here is the one she made for herself:
Isn't it great? And $70 bucks? Are you kidding me? If I could sell mine for $70 I'd be a crazy-rich jewelry artist! I have millions of buttons from my Mom's shop!
Here are a few that I pulled out this morning to work with:
Here it is all finished! (I went a little nutso on mine--I think I have twice as many buttons on there as Aubree does.)
Do I look pleased with myself OR WHAT??? (That is a brave pic--no makeup and bed-head hair!)
Oh my goodness I am in love with these.
I could just stare at this thing all day. I can't wear it--I won't be able to see it!
So I do actually have a job (I work from home as a communications consultant) and I do have a big project today--but you can bet that as soon as I complete it, and as soon as the kids are fed, and the laundry is done, and the grocery shopping finished, and the baths taken, and the books read . . . I will be making more!!! LOL
Update 2 hrs later . . . I made ANOTHER ONE!!! (This may end up being a worse obsession than the Ruffle T-shirts!!!)
I am linking up today to the Creative Chick Parade, a blog hop supported by several of my most favorite funky and crafty blogs.
