Vintage Image Button Necklace

There were four image buttons to choose from before I settled on this grouping of three.

I was editing some very old postcard files in photoshop this week to make some new buttons for my magnet wall at the Blue Banana store in Toronto. After making a few, I decided I just had to find a way to wear them. I love these 1920's woman. They are so glamorous. This kissing series is one of my favorites.

I knew when I bought my button making machines that I would do more than just make pins or magnets. Since I have so many jewelery components it is easy to see how quickly I joined these classic 1 1/2 inch buttons into this bigger pendant.

I am sure it will catch they eye when I wear it.
Perhaps I will put it on when I go downtown to rearrange my magnet wall.

Lovely Carmi! It's so nice to be able to make your own unique components.

Too cool! Would you be willing to share what kind of button maker you have? Your results are lovely and I have a hard time imagining them being pounded together between two nylon dies, the only kind of button maker I have seen!

My button maker is from Tecre. Lots of online stores sell them!
