I love to experiment with different mediums. Because I love to sew, like so many others, I love buttons. Over the years I have collected a lot of buttons. You look at them and say what the heck can I do with these little gems. Well, I also love to wear pins, or as my friends call them "broches"... LOL!!! They always tease me about my "broches"... Anyways, I love them. I'm not a jewelry person, but love to wear pins. So these are made from a bunch of buttons I had in my sewing box. I tried using jewelry glue, but found out that it not only smelled really bad, but it didn't work the way I wanted it to. About the same time I was making these, my sister-in-law was making bridesmaid bouquets out of buttons for her future daughter-in-law. She also tried using jewelry glue and found that a glue gun worked much better. I had to agree. The glue gun worked perfectly. I purchased the findings from the internet and now I have a host of button pins that I love to wear.
This is very similar to the bouquet that my sister-in-law made. They were just gorgeous. Her daughter-in-law had inherited massive amounts of buttons from her grandmother. So this was a nice way of honoring her grandmother and using those beautiful buttons.
