CHA Make and takes

Summer CHA is over and I'm back on deck again... well almost. So until I settle back into routine I thought I'll share a couple of cool make and takes I did at CHA.

This first one is just so stunning and yet unbelievably simple: it's a way cool ring made using coordinated buttons from Blumenthal Lansing. These are from their new line called Coordinates and they come carded so all you need do is select your look and stack the buttons together. Add a few beads and your done.
It's all tied together with plastic beading thread and then hot-glued onto a ring base. I think the hardest part of making this ring was selecting one of the fantastic button cards.
Coordinates are not up on their website yet but if you're interested in this one, it's called Starburst.
Look out for another make and take later in the week.

Bye for now,
