Thank you brooch

Having struggled with (and finally done) the purple earrings and whilst I had the thread and beads out I thought I'd go in search of a two hole, one inch button.

I used to have lots of this size but they've mostly been used for similar brooches so I was VERY surprised to find I had just a few left AND a purple one too!!! Out it came and I used this pattern (with the new joining technique) to make the brooch below.

That new joining method may take a little more thought but it really does settle the join onto the edge of the buttons.

I'm thinking I'll have to make another of these too... to be posted to Oz! I think a certain crazy friend will appreciate it. Now to source cool colours for it!!

That looks great. The first thing I noticed was how the rings sit on the edge. It makes it all look so even. You do know that Fred (at PTG) will want the purple ones. She loves purple like no one else.

I love this and wonder why we like buttons and collect these trinkets and decorate them. I think it's like shells on a beach 😀❤😀
