This is what you get after watching a night of royal wedding coverage. I'm serious! It all happened so subconsciously. A pretty vintage button, a few crystals, some nostalgia and blingo! And besides, anything to use a vintage button for jewelry, right? To make this I used a large Katiedid component, Beadalon gunmetal chain, button with round shank on back, Swarovski crystals, 3mm coral beads, and a Vintaj Arte metal leaf charm. Also, I sanded the Katiedid and put a coat of liver of sulphur on it....to antique it a bit, you know?
The button with a round shank on the back made it so I could string it just like a bead with the same head pin it's hanging from. Use a touch of tubing on both sides of the shank to center it---no adhesive required (jic you want to use your button for something else later on). Ok?
I've always loved vintage. If I was going to prom, I would wear this little gem. Or the Royal Wedding for that matter. Hey, a girl can dream!
