button earrings

It has been a while since I last used buttons in my jewellery designs, so today I thought I would see what I could make -

 First of all I had to decide which buttons to use - these were given to me by one of my aunts two or three years ago, and many must be over 50 years old there were some real gems in this collection and I am already formulating ideas for those, but today I thought I would try these pretty little pearly white ones.



I added Swarovski crystals for added sparkle along with some tiny glass rocailles beads. I am very pleased with these button and crystal earrings - there will definitely be more designs to follow
