My inspiration for this was Janis Gurneys beautiful work.
This piece was cute but I re-invented it.
I made it into button encrusted door hangers. I took the frames apart, spray painted them, then glued on buttons. I added old earrings to the bottom and added ribbon for hanging.
These stick pin jewerly pieces became part of one broach.
I added some other jewelry pieces to create the broach (all glued onto a washer). The chain and hanging bauble were taken from the picture frames in the previous project.

Thanks again to Karilelek for the tub of junk.
