Vacation Photo Bracelet with my Handmade Button Charms.
While I can put photographs on my buttons (as you can see from above) it's a bit tricky and I sometimes find they're a bit darker than I'd like. It's hard to get the contrast just right when the photographs have similar tones. These charms are also about 3/4" or 2 cm round and I think next time I'd make them a bit bigger just because the photographs have a lot of detail so it would be easier to see them that way. The backs of the charms are just plain white. I think I might put a colour/color on the back next time as well. This was just an experiment really but I think it turned out pretty well. I'm not a jewelry/jewellery maker so will not be adding these types of items to my Etsy shop. This one is just for me and it's fun and brings a smile to my face when I remember the fun we had in Costa Rica.
