A Combination Carnival

I have been collecting buttons again lately, it really is like being in a lolly shop for me.

I have recently been to a wonderful button fair, it is run once a year by The Victorian Button Collectors Club in a quaint church hall.

I chose some absolute beauties!! I also bought a few buckles that I am sure I can find a good home for.

The reason for my collecting is I plan to put a few together in groups to make the most gorgeous rings! They are so beautiful in their own right that they should be worn with as much pride as the most precious jewel.

The best part about it is I am not going to keep them all for myself, I will be listing the finished rings for sale through my website in the next few months.

Each ring will have an adjustable 'ring' so they can fit most fingers. The rings in the picture are not for sale, I thought I would show you the first few I have made.

So keep a look out for them, I am sure there will be one to suit everyone.

  1. Buttons are such fun. I have already made jewellery from it when I was in my twenties. Now, in my forties, I like wearing more bold, crafted, arty metal things.
