She Wears Buttons - Giveaway - Win a Pendant or Ring



Yesterday I passed a brocante which is basically second hand/vintage items in an upmarket version off car boot sales. I don't go to them so much as they can be quite expensive, but as I was passing I thought to myself, might as well pop in and have a quick look. I found the buttons above (a full card off 12 vintage mother of pearl buttons) beautifully engraved and gorgeous colours when the sun hits them, little splashes of greens and pinks, made in the late 1930's and in mint condition. I haggled my socks off but lost and I had to go borrow some cash from my SIL to buy them but so very pleased I did. I love them and have great plans for a few of them. Definately going to make a pendant or two:)

Here's my first ring. I added another small, also beautifully engraved vintage bronze button to the centre and then popped a soft pink pearl bead in, perfect fit. I am pleased with the result, what do you think?  I have it listed in my shop and if you want to see more pictures, click here.  
  





A few more for my collection
 I thought it would be fun for one of my lovely followers to win a ring or pendant made with one of my new buttons. All you have to do is this. Follow my blog (please) and leave a comment as to whether you would like a ring or pendant and I will pick a winner at random on the 22nd August.  Told you it was easy. A little something extra, if you purchase any item from my shop adding Bloglove will give you free shipping. Just thought I would mention it.

I would have been drooling over those mother of pearl buttons if I had seen them in a shop--they're beautiful! I once found a real bargain in a brocante, in Brittany--two Quimper dishes labeled Mama and Papa. They were a great addition to my wee little Quimper collection.

If I were to win something made out of your new button, I would pick a pendant!

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement said...

Wow, you definitely scored some lovely buttons there! I can't wait to see what you do with all of them-I LOVE the first ring you made :)

The best part of getting something is the haggling, so even though you lost, I'm proud of you for putting up the effort! Lol

I would love a pendant...or a ring....ooooor......A pendant! That's my final answer :)

Oh, and of course I'm already a follower!
