Functional and Stylish!  I found a fun collection of buttons on Flickr this week.  Buttons are simple to make and can be made using any techinque you already know.

Buttons can be created by piercing two or more holes, adding a jump ring on the back, you can use metal or glass buttons to cover with polymer clay or you can use the button shanks from fabric stores.

Want to know more:

And if you want to know everything about polymer clay buttons, ask a wise owl. (or at least a Mossy one!)
