Clearly because I am me, I left this to the very last minute! Some of you may know I've been working towards a production which took place on
Friday night. Yesterday I had to get up (slightly worse for wear...!) pack, see a friend off on the train, and then get in the car and head off to Cornwall for a holiday. Then at about 8.30 I sat down with my buttons....and came up with this:
Sweet, simple and I am genuinely very pleased with how it turned out. The leather cording is quite new to me, I haven't worked with it much before and I love the simplicity of it. It's 2mm diameter and I like that it's a bit bulkier than others I've dabbled with previously. The button didn't need much - just a bit of linen cording and some opal green czech glass beads that arrived last week.
I love it when designs just come together like this! No fuss, just a few knots and you're done. Here's the clasp:
One of those lovely carved beads and a simple loop.
Here's what I have left over for a rainy day:
Sweet. Thanks Emma! And thanks Cindy for organising this fun hop. I love buttons and it's been great to try out using some in my jewellery. Because I'm on my phone and wasn't organised enough to schedule this post, I don't have the list of other participants to add here but if you hop over to Cindy's then you'll see the list there. Off to check out what Emma's created with the buttons I sent her! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
