The buttons in their natural habitat on my craft table. I got these buttons from the PTO Thrift store. I was sifting through drawers of them, and these were gorgeous.
There's a secret to these buttons!
I already started wiring one, then thought to take a pic. This is all new to photo a project in process. The entire time I was working on this, my 10 year old was having me help her write a poem about each planet in the solar system. ARGH!!!!!!! Oh well, we got it done, even though it about killed us both. (The planet Uranus has a surface like pudding....wait- what rhymes with pudding?)
Anyhoo, I wired the hell out of them through the shanks, and TA-DA! I ended up with a vintage looking pendant on a silver chain. I'm going to pop this one on my Etsy store. I like it. It's a good start for a first day project! :)

Not so bad for my first day of the 30 Day Craft Challenge.
