Button Earrings Anyone???

phew!! Ive been busy... after i posted last night i went on to finish of a custom order of a batch of jewellery for girls. After Alison sold some of my jewellery at the school she teaches in, one of her friends asked her if i would make a batch of jewellery for girls as she wanted to use them as presents for when her little one goes to parties. i made 8 pairs of hair clips, 5 bracelets and 3 necklaces. i hope that that's enough and that the sizes are OK....turns out I'm no expert on the sizes of young children's wrists!!

I took a look in the drawer where i keep stock for the stuffednonsense/bexsbuttons stall, and decided it looked a little bit bare....soooo knuckled down to some button sorting and these are the outcomes....

i had hoped to do 5 pairs of droplet style earrings but i only had enough findings for 4 droplets so i made a pair of studs too...these have always been really popular at previous sales i have done. the buttons on the two top pairs are fabulously vintage....I'm not sure if they might be Bakelite or some such thing?? does anyone know how you tell what buttons are made of??

i like the packaging for these...the backing of sheet music makes the earrings look extra cute i think.

i was worried the other day that i was blogging too much, but then i figured that when i blog it kind of helps me switch of the crafty scatter brain side of my brain for a few minutes. its only going to get worse in the next month with the fair coming up...poor old arth, hes going to lose his girlfriend to buttons,table arrangements,fabric and thread.

I'll be back soon i imagine!! Oh, thanks to everyone who has entered the giveaway...there's still time to enter as I'm going to close the competition on Sunday...just comment on the post 2 or 3 posts below. Thanks for all of your comments about what you are glad other people appreciate Richard Scarry!!
