Nice cluster of glass paperweight buttons on a Sterling silver ring blank. Reminds me of the big, bold mid-century cocktail rings.

Seen a lot of these around etsy so I decided to try making one myself. Turned out nice! I used 2 mm brown leather cord, Nymo size D brown beading thread, 6/0 Czech brown color lined luster seed beads, and lemon-lime Czech Picasso rondelles 9 mm X 6 mm, and a "pewter" flower button.

Ever come home with random strands of beads? You didn't have a specific project in mind; just bought them 'cause you loved them. A project could be figured out later. Well, don't stash those beads away! Wear em! It's fast and easy to string those beads on stretch cord and wear as a bracelet until you come up with a permanent home for them. Stretch cord is cheap and easy to snip and release the beads for use elsewhere.

I used Japanese washi papers for two of the pendants and the bird pendant was made from markers, ink and stamps I had on hand...
You can use just about any type of paper: scrapbooking paper, vintage postcards, etc. I like to seal my papers with Modge Podge to make them more durable.
If you're the lazy type like me, you can find complete tile pendant making kits on etsy.
