Also had this button for a couple of months. I was going to use it in one of my beaded braided bracelets like the one below but I couldn't get the color match with beads quite right. The aqua blue was beautiful but didn't match any of my beads and the red had a slight orange tinge to it!
Well the two worlds collided by accident and I was soooooooo happy! Went to Ornamentea on Friday morning for Breakfast and Beads (my summertime weekly pleasure. one more Friday to go before back to work...so sad!!) and brainstormed with the girls and the lovely Tracey, who helped me with this idea!!! I LOVE YOU TRACEY!! :)
Came home and played some more and this is it so far. Still some tweeking to do with this one, but I am in love with it.
Here is another one that will go in the shop first:
