Buttons are addictive as beads
I can see that buttons collecting is addictive as collecting beads. I recently came into a collection of old buttons. There are all kinds, wood, shell, plastic, and metal.
I had so much fun looking at them all and trying to figure out a few ring combinations.
Wooden Button Mother of Pearl Brass Ring
The first ring I made was with this old wooden button. Don't you love the texture and patina of the wood?
I put a carved mother of pearl button on top that has a starburst pattern. I also added 3 tiny brass beads just for fun.
The ring is on a darkened brass base and is adjustable from size 5 to size 7. Available in my Etsy shop.
