Buttons, eyeballs and clay!
Hmmmm buttons. I was lucky enough to receive some lovely buttons for my birthday last year. Bought for me by work colleagues. I don't usually use buttons in my work but during a recent tidy up; came across these in a bag. After tidying I wondered how I could use a button in a quick design. A clasp I hear you shout - yep that's a start. So here is my small stash of buttons - you can see that I have stuck one down to bezel around (but thats another blog post).
Here is my bracelet complete with button clasp - a simple tubular herringbone stitch with crystal accent beads - have to say that I really like this one. I haven't yet listed this one for sale but you can always message me if it takes your fancy!
The other thing I have been playing with recently is eyeballs and spikes. Whilst a lot of my beady buddies are taken with the latest glass spike beads - I travel a different path. I have a few variations of these pendants - different eye colour and spike combination and am having a lot of fun with them.
Sneak peak on what I have been up to with my polymer clay cabs - big reveal in another post:
