Button Blog Hop Reveal

Thanks Cindy Wimmer of Sweet Bead Studio for starting this button blog hop, I love buttons!


My partner sent me more than just these buttons but I forgot to snap a photo of them all.

I made these 2 awesome pairs of earrings with the Vintage button's Kay sent (at least I think they are awesome)

I made these first, they have 6 strands of Vintaj chain with Vintaj corrugate rounds

They are fringy and fun
Then I wanted to add some color:

also fringy but a totally different look

I love the longer dangle in the middle



Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out what Kay made with the buttons I sent her.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's!

I love love love the earrings you made with your vintage buttons. I esp love the ones you added color to. The chain fringe is such a great idea!

What a beautiful design! I love the buttons, and the chains dangling below remind me of a flirty skirt. What a fun idea! Have a blessed Mother's Day!

Those turned out so cute Shannon. I'm glad you liked them. I love the fringe on them, and the color on the second set really makes them pop.

Fringe, dangles, love anything like that. The buttons give the earrings a vintage look.

Shannon - what a fantastic idea to incorporate the vintage buttons in to earrings! The fringe is really stunning - on both pairs. I'd wear them in a heart beat! Hope you had a great Mother's Day today!

Shel said...

Okay Shannon - I'm thinking they're both fantastic pairs of earrings, but that second pair would look great w/several outfits I own!! ;-) Both pairs are too, too yummy!!

Charming Peggy said...

What a clever way to use those buttons! So much fun!

AntiquityTravelers said...

Indeed they are awesome! the fringe is ab-fab! Love using chain like that in earring designs - well done!

Holly said...

Shannon! Oh goodness, these are just cute, cute, cute! I can totally see these with a pretty summer sundress!

BahamaDawn said...

LOVE the dangles on the earrings! Beautiful work!

Jennifer said...

Great dangle fringe. Nice job!

CraftyHope said...

Those turned out really cute! I like them both with the beads on the bottom and without. I guess you've got enough buttons on that card to make a couple more pairs if you wanted. Lovely job Shannon!

I would love wearing these! My favorite are the blue/green. What fun earrings!!

Alice said...

What sweet earrings! I love the fun fringe design, and that you can use so many kinds and colors and beads to make a totally diffferent look.

Cece Cormier said...

Cool earrings. I'd wear them any day.

Julia said...

OMG I love those earrings!!! The combination of brass chain and vintage cloth earrings was lovely enough-- but the splash of color on the bottom truly finishes them off :)

Thanks for sharing with all of us!
