TREASURE PROJECT 3: The Metal Buckles

Happy Thursday morning, everyone!!!  I hope everyone's doing well and awaiting a creative and fun fast approaching weekend!

Of course, I'm back with another project from my treasure find, this is number 3 in this series.  I don't know exactly what these are called so I'm going to refer to them as metal buckles:

This project took a bit of thought because I had several ideas but I decided on this project.   I think you will all like it; I love it!  Of course, I couldn't wait for it to dry completely or get it cleaned up before letting you see it, I'll do that later, so you might not want to do any close-ups!

First I gathered together a few materials:

These items are:  epoxy resin, small gold roses, a string of beads, and white buttons with gold trimmings(which are also from my treasure find), and this is what it became:

I slid my favorite Akoya pearl necklace through the back and viola!!!

Ummmm, I think I might do a pair of matching earrings and a pin!  Well..., I really hope you like it as much as I do!

I'll be back later using another of this button and resin for another project, so I'll see you then!
