Button Inspired Jewelry

Buttons. I love them. They add a little something to so many projects. So why not let them be the project? Here are some button earrings I've made:

All you need are two buttons, two earring posts w/backs, thread (if you want), and some super glue or hot glue & a glue gun. It's all pretty basic and doesn't take long at all. 

Thread the buttons so they look finished (if you want), tie a knot on the back, and cut the ends off. Then just glue them to the earring posts. If your buttons don't have holes exposed on the front, you will have to deal with the loop that extends off of the back of the button. Just use some cutting pliers, or something similar to cut the back loop off before you glue the earring posts on. There's no need to thread anything in this case.

I've gotten more than one random compliment from strangers when I have worn mine. 

You don't have to stick to just making earrings either. You can make rings, bracelets, etc. 
Check out the cute bracelet my sister, Lizz Gibson, made:

And aren't we so lucky that there are buttons to match every outfit?

  4. Michael Kors Outlet Online was a huge success there and became very well known. The designer Kors then branched out into accessories including Michael Kors Handbags Clearance. He never lost focus on his American chic styling. Some of his most notable collections include the Michael Kors Totes, Michael Kors satchel and the Designer MK Outlet and Michael Kors Outlet Online Store.

  5. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
