Do you make any jewelry with buttons? If so, could I commission you to make six sets of something with a button collection I've had since childhood?
I accepted the challenge. Since my friend wasn't sure that all of her sisters have pierced ears, she requested necklaces. Inspired by this tutorial, I came up with the prototype below, using shell buttons from my grandmother's collection.

Although I love them all, this necklace is my personal favorite of the five.
Now that I know what to do and how to do it, I think I will offer these on my Etsy site as a commissioned item for anyone who wants it. Do you have a button collection you would like to share in a special way with family or friends? Email me or convo me on Etsy and let me help you!

ROW 80 update: Now that all my special order jewelry has been shipped I can spend more time on my NaNoWriMo project. I am definitely behind on my word count goal but I crossed the 20K mark late last night. Three thousand words a day between now and the end of November will put me in the winner's circle. Here I go!
