I knitted new cardigan for myself, but didn`t find matching buttons. So I made them from polymer clay, using piece of wallpaper to add texture to black Fimo. I had turquoise Inca Gold Paste, but it wasn`t  the “right” color for the buttons(yarn color was petrol or teal), but I also had Mica Powder Paints (Zesty Lime). Mixing them together I got the perfect result. After applying the paste to textured clay I cutted buttons out using the smallest Fat Daddio round cutter, cured them on the small light bulb and filled with clay. Buttons have metal chanks made of 0.8 mm silved plated wire.I just pressed them to the clay and textured the back of button with wallpaper around my finger.

I am a big fan of 2 Good Claymates, especially their scarf jewelry. My mother saw me looking their website and asked me to make one scarf necklace for her green scarf too. I gave it a try,of course, and here it is:

For the back of  flower I  cut a football-shape piece of polymer clay with Fat Daddio cutter and folded it in half. Fortunately I had some little green cat`s eye cabochons for the center. My mother was really happy to have this gift and so was I. :) Thanks to 2 Good Claymates for inspiration!
