Frosty's All Buttoned Up
Topic: Jewelry

I ended up in the craft studio today (as opposed to the quilt studio) to put new clasps on some necklaces that were too hard to fasten with older fingers. They all got changed to magnetic clasps.

Then I had some charms to add to my charm bracelet and a clasp to swap out on a second one.

I had some fun on a project that I can't show until it is gifted and then I picked up a page I had copied from a recent craft magazine and decided to make one of the items they showed.

I dug out the button box and sorted until I found just the right sizes and colors. Then I pulled out the jewelry tools and some wire. The wire was bent into a long loop and the buttons threaded on using two holes in each one.

At the top, I wrapped one wire end around the other and then created a loop.

A snippet of checked ribbon was tied in a knot around the narrowest part and details were added with Sharpie markers.


These are so stinkin' cute! I'm adding chains to make them into necklace pendants.
