I thought about things I could make with beautiful buttons, and apart from sewing them on clothes, this is what I came up with:
The white one I gave to a friend for her birthday. Since I really liked it, I made another one for myself:
My sister already told me she'd also like a button necklace, one in black and gold, and I think I could use one or two more in different color schemes. :-) I've already decimated my button stash rather drastically, so I spent some time on ebay the last couple of days to replenish it. There are a lot of buttons on ebay, it's a button-lover's paradise!
I'm thinking of creating a DaWanda-account and try to sell them. I'm not sure anybody would buy them... I do think they're cute, in a quaint way. What do you think?
