Getting ready for spring.
I got a wee bit too much 2-part epoxy on this one, but this is the way I make shank buttons.
You can make buttons by embedding the metal shank in the molten glass.
The reason I do it this way is that I can use all sort of pretty colors of 18 gauge wire for my shanks.
My favorite was just plain transparent cobalt blue with silver foil.
Working on building up a nice inventory of these for an event in April.
I'm going on vacation with a bunch of quilters - and those ladies love their buttons.
