Welcome to the March Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This month's theme is all about buttons and our challenge was to use PTI buttons on a project...however we wanted!
Well, I decided to have some fun with this one! I've attemped several times to make my own button rings! I love the look of them, they are just so fun! So, when I saw this theme was buttons, I decided to pick up my tools and give it another try. Now, I am just a novice and am just beginning to learn how to do this and I taught myself by watching videos, so these pieces are by no means perfect! :) (Be prepared, there are A LOT of pictures!)
But first, let's start with the packaging!
Here's the box open:
And, what is inside...
Here's a closeup view of the jewelry inside that is made with PTI Vintage Buttons.
On the necklace pendant I used Hawaiian Shores buttons on the base and as the top piece also. I LOVE the sparkly Raspberry Fizz button in the middle! The three buttons are glued on to the back of a jewerly pendant base.
Here's a view of the duo together. I love that ring too! The colors are just so fun!
The photo above shows the ring you already saw above, plus two others made using the Hawaiian Shores & Chocolate Brown buttons with silver wire. I have several shirts in this color scheme that I'll enjoy wearing these with!
This ring uses one of the fun flower buttons (this one in Aqua Mist) that are found in many of the button collections! I used just a little bit of a wire loop on the flower to make a flower center and not hide the rest of the button.
I also made some pendants to match the rings. All three of them can be seen below.
