Pretty as a Button

May has, without a doubt, been one of the busiest craziest months in recent memory... In fact, it's been so full-and-exhausting that just thinking about it is making me tired.

So! Instead, I will share these:

Button Necklaces!

I've mentioned these before... Essentially, I turn buttons into pendants, and then string them on special necklaces. 

...And I have been having so, so much fun making them! 

In all the craziness of this month, it's been so relaxing finding the right color combinations and the right design to match each button. In fact, I've been working more on these than my May Monthly Challenge! (Heh, I really should get on that.)

I've even started to list these necklaces in my store, paired with matching earrings. Hurray!



It is definitely nice to have a project to work on in order to unwind... And, once I figure out a way to create pendants without having to remove the shanks, I may graduate to vintage buttons! The possibilities! :)


And now to go be productive! There is laundry to put away, and a craft room to clean, and custom orders to make, and exercise to be done! ...And about umpteen million other things to do. ;)

I hope everyone is doing well! Take care!

  1. Oh you can use the shanks to wire wrap buttons and use them as pendants
