I have finally had a chance to sit down and play with those lovely buttons that I took delivery of last week. Alas I discovered that my wire work is a little rusty so some of the products I was planning to trial will have to wait a while longer. I did though come up with some potential products that I am quite happy with and which I think variations of will probably make it onto my Etsy shop in the not too distant future.
I made the rather lovely button bracelets above – the top one I tried out different spacing on to see what effect I liked the most so the variation on gaps is intentional! Both of these designs will certainly be making their way onto my shop. After the success of my Christmas tags amongst my family and friends, I decided to try out some ideas for Valentine’s Day and made some tags. Am not completely sure about all of the designs – I will definitely be making some to sell though. Last but not least, I had a go at making double button earrings. I used up an old pair of buttons with writing on to make them (something I wouldn’t do if selling them) and was really pleased with the end result. Now I need a good stock of base buttons in order to make these to sell….oh dear….more button shopping!
