custom order

I got one custom order while I was at the Arts Festival.  A lady who visited my booth on Saturday came back on Sunday with a button necklace.  She used to have a matching bracelet and wanted a new one (in the style of my button charm bracelets, she didn't like the style of her old one) and a pair of matching earrings.  This is what I came up with for her.

I had never done a button charm bracelet in neutral shades before.

This is the second pair of button dangle earrings that I've made now.  I have two more laying out on my button tray, waiting to be glued right now.



The bracelet and earrings will be on their way tomorrow!

I had a raffle at the Arts Festival.  I drew my winners last night and contacted them today.  There are 3 winners who each get their choice of a pair of peyote triangle earrings or a peyote triangle pendant.  I heard back from one tonight who would like a pair of green striped peyote triangle earrings.  I was planning on restocking these in my Etsy shop at some point anyway so I'll be making a couple pairs this week.

  6. Thanks Paige! I have made black and white button charm bracelets before but never one with brown shades like this. I may try it again, though!

  7. think the button bracelet looks great! And I'm sure it would feel great against your wrist, and I'm not even a big bracelet wearer...

  8. Thanks Deb! I have a red one in my personal collection, and I think that it's pretty comfortable. The old one that the lady had was a wire wrapped one that wasn't made very carefully so it caught on everything. Apparently it ruined the lining of one of her coats. :( So she wanted something that wouldn't do that. I think that this design will work well for her.
