It's taking me a while to get used to my new way of making. I seem to spend the first hour or so just wandering around the studio, faffing with things and feeling a bit lost! Like I said before, I've never spent whole days making jewellery before, so it is definitely taking some time to get used to having my own space. I remembered to take milk with me on Friday, so for the first time was able to make myself a coffee! I've had in my head for ages about making buttons, but because of the cost of silver, wondered whether anyone would actually want fine silver buttons. I should've know just to ask my friends on Bead Buddies They all suggested using them as clasps for their jewellery and also bag makers may like them as clasps. So, having found a use for them, I made these
They are fresh out of the kiln so haven't been polished, but I'm really happy with them, and can see these being a regular feature in my online shops. Next to try will be bronze buttons!
