How fun! It is open to anyone, not just beaders, interested in giving, receiving, sharing buttons!!
Buttons in all shapes and sizes are great for adding interest to jewelry designs.
I have used them on many occasions! I have a button bracelet and button necklace in the "funky finds" section of my book, A Bead in Time. I thoroughly enjoy expanding my imagination and trying to figure out ways to use unconventional pieces in jewelry!
I have also been successful with cutting off the button shank with a good pair of wire cutters and gluing the button on a ring form! You can use small buttons that just cover the ring form OR the largest button you can find since big, statement rings are IN!
