this is a Lisa Peters Art shank button~
i was having a hard time beading around this button because of its shape~i just could not get it to sit right~being both concave on the top and convex on the bottom
it caused me a lot of frustration UNTIL i pulled out one of my trusty beading books~(thank you~YOU know who you are :D)
to refresh some ideas~ and realized i had these oh so cool artbeads toho 4mm dark plum iris squares!
the height of the beads allowed me to layer a nice wall
this is a chunky and heavy pin!
definitely made for a coat lapel
of course the brilliant color of both the button and beads just don't show~
but finally i am happy to be able to concur this beautiful button and am now waiting for more artbeads to redo the other shank button i have
still can't decide if i am going to add a fringe to it yet~
and since i have the flu right now~ yuck!!!
me thinks i will have to wait to make that decision just a bit longer ~
and a winters mess on the way for the next few days i really hope its all snow ;D
