All Buttoned Up

Taking vintage buttons in a new direction, here are some new pieces that I have cast from old and interesting buttons collected at various markets and antique stores.  The process involved making a silicone mold of each button, then creating a cast in resin.  In future I'll be able to use different kinds of resin and pigments to cast these in a variety of colours.

I can't wait for the findings I have ordered arrive and I can finish these into some new pieces of jewellery!  Yay for new techniques :p
