This big cool button was an auction score! It's big (about 2 inches in diameter) and is made out of an unknown material. If I had to guess, I'd say Gutta Percha, but I'm really not sure. The little screw heads don't hold anything together, they are just decoration! The 3 corrugated beads going up the chain are vintage too, from Earthly Adornments. Chain is from Vintaj.
A couple years ago, I was on a buckle binge! I made up about 20 pendants using vintage buckles, with butterflies and dragonflies. While I was rooting around for red beads to use for my Znetshows winter challenge, this buckle caught my eye, and I just had to follow through.
Czech glass flowers, Swarovski bicones, and flower chain. Not wintry at all!
That's it for now. In my next post, I will begin to reveal my designs for the Znetshows Winter Design Challenge. Please stop back.
