I found these awesome pin back buttons on Ebay. Magic Hat Brewery is one of my favorite microbrews and this bracelet is a great tribute to it's playful caps and excellent beers.
Wow, this is awesome. Such a lot of work, and Magic Hat Brewery gets free advertizement! I love the way you made scalloped edges around the bearcap cabochons. And I would love to get some instructions on how to make one of these. Do you sell instructions?
My goal this summer is to write instructions, I've had several requests. In the meantime, though, this is made primarily through bead embroidery, treating the pin back button as a cabochon. Sherri Serafini has an excellent book on bead embroidery that will get you started. If you decide to start a piece you can also shoot me an email and I'll help step you through it. The nice thing about a pin back buttons is you don't have to do any work to them. When I use bottlecaps, I flatten them first and pour resin in the well that's created to protect the image.
Thanks so much for your kind words and leaving a comment!
