so i just bought a 5 pounds bag of buttons  Smiley
and i kept most of them for sewing projects

but some of them where so nice that i made jewelry out of them


simple red


one of my favs


the button is some type of seashell looking material... its called nacre in french, i think, but dunno the name in English Undecided


this one is scratched, i may have to keep it for myself!

and that's where i was when i ran out out ring blanks
thanks for looking!

comments are welcome Smiley

thanks!

the black ring forms are made out of ring shaped beads i salvaged from vintage jewels i got in a thrift store...

they are nice and solid, made out of some sort of natural material like glass or bone, its hard to tell, but they are pinky ring sized and not adjustable...

so I'm going to make most of the rings on silver blank rings that i ordered and am supposed to receive tomorrow

the blue ring form is soft plastic rings i bought in a dollar store, just like the kind i used to wear when i was a kid Smiley
