Buttons in Gold

The wholesale part of our clay has been keeping us busier these days with two more stores added that are now selling our beads, buttons and shawl pins.  One thing we enjoy the most is the freedom we have to create new designs all the time so we do not get bored with making the same piece over and over again.  We are also "tailoring" our work to each store so they all have certain items that are unique only to them and the  same items are not repeated everywhere.

Here are some samples of textured buttons in gold.  We like to use a variety of textures or stamps that lend themselves well to using mica powders, inks, pigments or acrylic paints.  You might recognize a few of the patterns from Helen Breil's texture sheets which I love working with.
