New buttons

Ever since Rhi made the first wood button ring, I've wished they were in brighter colours. After some discussion, I was given the group ok to buy some vintage buttons in different colours to use for the rings, which I have since started making as well. Today I finally went to our local button store. Here's my haul, complete with notes made by the owner of the store so I could remember what buttons were what.







I want to say that I am being a bit of a tease by posting these because I won't be able to start making new rings for another few weeks. Keep an eye out for them in September.
