I think so...they're cute!  I like the use of buttons.  Very unique.  Maybe if it isn't too hard you could put the wire through all 4 button holes so it looks more like a button at first glance.  Always keep in mind vintage buttons.  Grandmas are great sources for all those 50's fabulous ones!  Good luck & let us know when you start selling!

Yeah I reckon so!  Presentation is the key (says I, I'm no expert!), so display/photo them on posh backgrounds, a wire jewellery tree, etc.  I think they look great - go for it Smiley

Is there anyone who can help me in finding a good supplier for wire? I am looking for basic silver nickel wire (not sterling, but would consider as well) I live in Toronto.... any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Have you been to firemountaingems.com? Lots of people swear by them, but I'm not sure on their prices/shipping to Cananda.

those look very polished...I cant tell you what price I would pay for them though just because its been ages since I've purchased jewelry...I imagine I'd probably pay 8 or 10 bucks for them at a fair or market......the pic is so fuzzy...have you tried photobucket.com for your picture host?

Wire - can't be specific as I live in UK! But i get mine either from a big craft store, or a bead shop (not sure how many of those there are around) or ask at small hardware stores.  if you're in a city chances are there is a metal and wire manufacturer (?) somewhere in the industrial area, look in Yellow pages.  Straight from the supplier is darn cheap. Hope this helps.
