This week the button aisle was full of amazing new finds. I picked up a lot of super cute stuff this weekend . Sooo adorable!! I just had to start with these… Simba, Timon, & Pumbaa.
Don’t ask what my favorite Disney film is ’cause I really don’t know. It’s hard to choose. I haven’t seen the Lion King in forever. I have probably seen Aladdin 1,000 times though. Anyway, my first project was this wire wrapped pendant.
I love the way the colors came together. I searched through my buttons for a looong time finding the perfect bits. I don’t use gold wire very often but I felt it was appropriate for this palette.
I can’t even go into how perfect this lapel pin is! It turned out exactly how I pictured it in my mind. And I’ll be honest, that doesn’t always happen. I can’t even bear to part with it. I’m pretty sure I’m going to keep it. I’ll be making one for the shop soon… promise 🙂
I’m trying to challenge myself to use shank buttons more often in my jewelry. I tend to avoid them like the plague for some reason. Lately, I have been embracing them and trying to work them into things.
I remember my last trip to Disney world and my mom and I both picked out huge plushies for ourselves. I got a Tigger & she got Pooh.
