I have a one inch button maker that I love, and I want to expand my use of it to make other things.
In my head, I know exactly what I would need, part-wise, to make one-inch buttons into necklaces. I'd use the flat backs rather than the button backs, for starters. I found a source online for them (and magnets) but if you have one you like best, do let me know.
As for jewelry findings...well...I am not sure if I can explain this (I may draw a picture and scan it later!) - I need a metal piece that I can glue flat onto the back of the button, with a part that sticks up that is perpendicular to the flat part through which I could thread the cord/chain/ribbon/whathaveyou.
Does this make sense to anyone? Does such a thing exist? I couldn't just put a jump ring onto the button because then it wouldn't lie flat when the necklace was worn...maybe two jump rings connected?
I hope this makes sense to SOMEONE!
