I made these a while back but haven't gotten round to posting until today.

Sorry for the poor images - my proper camera is not working so had to make do.



These are vintage silver buttons, sewed together in arrangements and then glued to a ring base - simple but effective Smiley


These were quite popular at a recent craft fair I did. I think the simplicity is cute.


These were large plastic buttons with a shank at the back, I just cut that off and glued them to the ring base. They sparkle, as the plastic is cut really smooth.


lots of little embellished buttons Smiley


these 'zebra' buttons are groovy!


Just a few others.

I love buttons, they are so versatile.

Thanks for looking

What type of glue do you use? I been making earrings, but I'm looking for something a bit stronger.
