Buttons Galore

I love buttons, completely addicted to the little things.
I've now a number of jars full of pretty buttons, many I just can't bare to part with... but I'm going to.

Plus ll the buttons are all second hand, I just had to save the beauties.

Here's an example of my button galore necklaces.
Hope you like them.

(if you want one let me know or visit my artfire shop )

The time has come...

The time has come for me to finally sell items online.
I have finally managed to set up an online store on ArtFire. yay.
You can view it and sign up yourself here.
If you sign up please say I referred you, it would really help me out.

Hopefully I'll start selling lots of creations on there so keep a watch out.

Ring Pull Brooch

When I was younger, I used to drink way to much cider and as a result collected loads of ring pulls from cider cans. Last summer I found a whole bunch at home and came up with this brooch.

It is almost 100% recycled, the ring pulls, bottle cap, brooch back and string are all either rubbish or taken from old items I have. The only new thing used was the glue.
It was really simple to make and brings back many memories.
Hope you like.

Tiger Tiger

So over the Summer 2008, I collected hundreds and hundres of bottle caps.

I've so many now I don't know what to do with the all.

Here's the very first bottle cap necklace I made.
It's made from completely recycled materials.

The bottle caps are obviously from Tiger Beer bottles, the silver hoops are part of an old belt chain and it was all held together using a keyring split ring and jump rings from old jewellery.

Hope you like it.
