Hello All!  I finally finished this button necklace.  It drove me crazy at times, but luckily cupcakes and tea were able to return me to a solid enough state of mind to finish the darn thing.

Wow!  That's so pretty!  I would've given up after, like, 2 hours.  I'd love to see a picture of it being modeled (if that's not a problem)

Wow!  Thanks for all the positive feedback!  In response to mrsblocko, I found the charms at an awesome place called Capilano Rock and Gem in North Vancouver, British Columbia.  They were a dull gunmetal-grey colour, so I spruced them up with some gold nail polish.
