Buttons and boot bracelets

I’ve started putting my glittery buttons online. The colours are a bit limited, but the range will expand over the next couple of weeks! Both shank buttons and buttons with holes are available.

I’m also working on some boot bracelets to slip over wool boots such as Ugg boots, but also Cowboy boots. They are often worn by line dancers, but toning down the bling a bit makes them suitable for everyday wear! This is my first prototype (to be worn one per boot), and I hope to get them in my shop soon whilst we’re still wrapping up warm, I just need to find a more hardwearing chain!

Custom order finished… and some other stuff

Firstly- and most importantly- I need to let you all know that the price of the moulds in my shop will all be going up 50p on 1st January because of changing exchange rates and customs charges. But the good news is that for the whole of January you can get 15% off everything (moulds/jewellery/homewares…) in my January sale with the code “jansale09”. I hope that makes up for it!

I thought I’d show you a custom order I made for Chelsea on Etsy. It’s a full size king chess piece made from pearlescent powder and blue resin, cut in half with text applied and a bail attached. The idea was for it to be a good luck pendant for Eric’s chess tournament, but I think the King piece is a little on the large size at 12cm, so it will possibly be used as some other kind of ornament.

In other news I have started making resin buttons, but not a clue on how to price them! Do you think 80p-£1 each (depending on size and shank vs holes) is too much?

Also you can see Fletcher is back to normal after his ordeal- he interrupted my photo session as it was what we like to call “Fletcher-time” where he gets upset if you do not devote 100% of your attention to him! He does still look a bit spaced in the pic but it was the angle I took it on, saying that he looks dopey most of the time to be fair!

Stitched resin!

I am really pleased with these. I am planning on buying some more big buttons tomorrow as I think the ones with the large button backgrounds really work best. Incidentally, these buttons were from Rosina in the owl swap. I have approached a magzine with a tutorial for these and they are really easy, you just need some glitter, resin, buttons and an ice cube tray!
