I made these brooches by machine zigzagging fancy yarn onto thick black felt, then added my handmade buttons. I put a safety pin on the back as a fastener. I ended up making lots of them as it was quite hypnotic doing the spiral zigzagging!

Hypnotic is the word!
I think these are great - they'd made cool rings  Cheesy

I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue
And it's hey to the starboard, heave ho
Look out, lad, a mermaid be waiting for you
In mysterious fathoms below

These remind me of the chunky jewelery a lot of the rich older ladies around me wear, the kind that like to join the red hat society. Bet they would be a hit if you made some jewelery sets!

Such a cleaver idea!  I think they'd make a nice take on the yo-yo necklace.
