thank you 'corvus corax' for your buton tutorial! i made these as part of my christmas present for my boyfriends mum (she makes a lot of her own clothing/ bags etc and loves embellishing with unusual and vintage buttons so i thought these would be perfect for her!) i sewed them onto 'button cards' so they would look a bit more professional.

a few detail shots of some of my favorite ones.

Excellent!  Boy, bet she was happy  Grin

Did you do these as onlays of slices, etc., or were they cut out from cane slices... or what?

these were made with the scrap ends of canes (the green buton below is a whole cane slice) i did a few with slices of the cane but i thought the more absract designs from the scraps actualy look better. Smiley



you could mass produce the effect by standing the cane on its end and cutting down lengthways through the cane. this would produce the stripes.

Very lovely!  I need to play with some more abstract designs myself.  Your color choices are beautiful.
