Making a button hole in peyote was a first for me on the bracelet. It took me a minute to figure it out - as I started stitching the slit sideways instead of up and down with the flow of the beads. Figured it out pretty quickly, and like how it turned out. My button is a tagua nut round, with a magnesite disk that just fits inside, with a peanut bead and 15.0 on top. I love the peanuts around the outer edge. I tried several different things, but the peanuts seemed to mesh the best with the design of the bracelet. I tried o rings too, and they were a neat look, but ultimately the peanuts won out.
My other JDreams design is below. I used mixed metals to make the heart and wire wrap the shell beads for part of the chain. A special gift for Teri in my office. She has been soooo helpful to me this past year and I wanted to do something special for her birthday. She rides a darling covered scooter, and I found this charm with her in mind, and JUST kind of built it from there. This necklace and earrings came together like it was meant to be! Thank you, Teri!
