... and here are some beads that I made from that button:
And here is a necklace I made for myself (yes, you are seeing correctly -- this is a different color than the beads above -- I wanted a necklace to coordinate with a bracelet and earrings I already had.) Now all I need is a special event to wear this too!
.... I later made some buttons with shanks from that same mold. I applied mica powders to each one to create different color combinations.
We were at Katja's store again today and so decided to look through her tub of buttons again and found a lot more to play with.
