button - button

who has the button?
i do.
this flat blob of glass is my first lampwork button, it's a bit wonky but i love it. it was made with dark ivory glass, raku frit and fine silver foil and is almost 1 1/2" inches long.

it was made off mandrel with these:
the handy andy tungsten tweezers by andy ray at galactic glass.
this is a fun tool - it's for making holes.
just squeeze the hot glass and wiggle.
(the tool not your butt)

I love this button, and I think that the unusual shape is part of what makes it interesting. You're not likely to find one just like it down at ou sewing shop!
