Button Pendants

Update: The skunk smell is gone (I think)!!! I think all of my efforts yesterday to de-skunk the house and the dogs was a success. Thanks for all your comments, it WAS bad!!!!

I went into my craft room this morning to start a new project and got TOTALLY sidetracked by making button pendants.









I have so many beautiful buttons that I think would make incredible pendants. I made a few more that I couldn't photograph properly. I had such a hard time getting good photos of these!! I ended up taking some glue dots from my old scrapbooking stuff and making them stand up, supported by the glue dot.

I had my flash off and used the macro mode, it was just really really hard to get good photos. Any jewelry photography tips would be greatly appreciated!!!

Anyways, I hope you're having a super weekend. I'm headed out to go shopping and then we are meeting up with some friends for dinner.

Those are really cute. I'd love to see what the back looks like on them to see how the clasp was attached.

Oh those are so nice!! Your photography is excellent too, the details show up very well.

I saw your post to simplesparrow about the ripple afghan. If you aren't on the No-End-In-Sight Ripple Along blog, you should join! I actually finished a ripple afghan because of this group!!
