No, they’re not chocolate! They’re polymer clay buttons! Some are shaped from molds and some are molded by hand. (the acorn, the zuni bear, and the mushrooms, for example)
They need sanding and staining and sealing. Coming soon to a bracelet near you!
of buttons! The grandkids were in NYC over Thanksgiving, so these are the only things I’ve baked in a long while, unless you count toast! 😄
like crazy this holiday weekend!
These flowers will need to be trimmed down before becoming buttons. I’ll also highlight the details with mica powder before baking.

This is not nearly as big a haul as last year, but I had to have the buttons and they weren’t cheap! I’m very excited about the Transfer Artist Paper which claims that you can transfer prints from your computer to almost any medium! The paper and the fabric are from Judy Lea Enterprises. Judy will be opening a brick and morter shop in downtown Concord, NC, this summer! The threads are from YLI, and the earrings are by Susan Edmonson. I think they’ll match my vintage looking necklace from Vanessa at Beadlush. (Someday, I’ve got to tell you about that store!) I met lots of terrific, creative people and got links to their websites. I’ll have to share those sometime, too.
