Swirly Button

I love using buttons in jewelry and thought this adorable swirly button would make a great ring! I had seen some instructions for using buttons as rings by cutting off the button shank and gluing the button front to a ring blank. Cool idea!

I think you could also use this small button as a ring by stringing some e-beads for the band and the shank would fit nicely in between them. Small silver rounds would also make a nice band with this button.

If you like dainty bracelets, this button would be an adorable focal piece. Using some twirled silver wire embellishments would really give it some character.

Too cute!

What a cool button. Is it a base metal or metalized plastic (just curious - I've seen some great buttons and then not bought them because they're metalized plastic). The pattern is inspirational, all on its own.

Hi Dawno! This one is plastic with metallic paint accents. Actually pretty cute AND very light weight! Most likely came from Joann Etc.
