At Sweet Bead Studio, Cindy organized a button swap/hop. My swap partner was Shirley Moore in SC.  Since I am new, I didn't think to take a picture of the buttons she sent, but the buttons were wonderful.  I picked out the very cute clay heart button she created, then a green with white, a decorative gold one and a white pearl one. The green, white, and pearl buttons I stacked together with a little glue then attached a jump ring to the back. The cute pink and green heart I used wire and did little curly cues to the front to hold the heart, then twisted it in the back and attached it to the jump ring on the back of the button stack. The rest of the necklace is made up of button, and beads that I had.  I had a great time doing this and look forward to the next one.  Thanks Cindy! Below is a  list of other participants and the wonderful creations they made.Since I am new to blogging also, I hope the links all work . Thanks for looking!

  5. Vera, you made such a beautiful Springtime necklace - especially with the color scheme that you used. I like how you incorporated a bit of wirework too mixed in with your bead swap buttons. So glad that you participated & now you're a seasoned blogger after having participated in a swap and blog hop! ;-)
