Making Pretty new creations out of leftovers...Button Tassel Pendent

AFTER COUNTLESS HOURS MAKING MY OLIVIA ROSE NECKLACE TO SHIP OUT TO CUSTOMERS... I HAD A PILE OF HAND DYED SILK SNIPPETS LEFTOVER FROM MY NECKLACE CUTTINGS...PLAYING AROUND WITH THEM & THINKING WHAT I CAN DO TO USE THE RIBBONS... I CAME UP WITH THIS NEW CREATION.. ( It might be related to the octopus family) I DO REALLY LIKE THE WAY IT TURNED OUT.. I THINK I WILL MAKE A COLLECTION OF THEM. THIS ONE IS A FRENCH STAMP & BIRD DETAIL PRINT SOLDERED IN AN OVER SIZED BEVELED GLASS FRAME.. IT IS LONG..I USED REAL VINTAGE BUTTONS, MOTHER- OF -PEARL BUTTONS WITH VINTAGE RHINESTONE DETAILS...ALL RIBBONS ARE HAND DYED SILK.. TOP OF NECKLACE IS A COORDINATING RAINBOW OF MUTED COLORS WITH THE RIBBONS ALL TIED TOGETHER... I LOVE THE SOUND OF BUTTONS TAPPING EACH OTHER ALL GATHERED TOGETHER CREATING A SOFT WHIMSY TASSEL...LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.. I WILL HAVE A PRETTY ASSORTMENT FOR SALE IN MY SHOP OR YOU CAN CONTACT ME FOR DETAILS...XOXOXO LAURA
