Here is what she sent. Don't you just love the large ceramic one... How did she know that I love leaves and all things trees. My first thought was to make a journal and use one of the buttons for a closure and I may still do that but I really had to so something with that vintage lovely at the back.
This was the first piece and I knew I wanted to make a ring and this is the perfect button for that added flash for when we go out in the evenings.
This next piece just kind of created itself. My first thought was to make some of my signature wire leaves and dangle them off the bottom but when that didn't look good I moved it to the top and added gemstone beads of jade, malachite and unikite as dangles at the bottom. Since I felt it still needed something I tied a bit of sari silk in the middle and used the remainder to hang around my neck. Yep the perfect pendant.
I am so going to wear this today as my mother and I are going shopping for Mother's Day.... okay we really don't have to have a reason to go shopping but since I couldn't get the guys to agree to a picnic up on Mt. Rainier, we will just have to suffer through.
So if you would like to blog hop around and see all the other fantastic button works of art, here are the participants and their partners.
Enjoy and Happy Mother's Day!
