Button, button.....

Ok, so I went a bit overboard making buttons! I decided to make some of my own, when I could not find ones that I liked to embellish my jewelry and other pieces. Then the light bulb went on and I had one of those lucid moments. Here is the result so far. I made dozens of button shapes ranging from tiny to ginormous (is that a word anyone over the age of 10 should use?). Some have single holes, others multiple, but all are hand formed and imperfect. The way I figure, I will have more to choose from as I am inspired along the way and also have some to put in my Etsy store. There are a lot of options for surface decoration, so I am already spinning at those possibilities! But first these babies need to go into the kiln and to be  bisque fired. Fingers crossed, needle threaded.
