button earrings

I have had a fun afternoon of crafting today !  I started to play with the new buttons and these earrings are the result.  The buttons are bakelite, really old material.  They are black, with little flowers pressed into the surface and (probably) handpainted  in red and white and green. As I had 4 buttons,  I made 2 pair.  One for me and one as a gift.  Maybe my eldest son can give them to his girlfriend Lisa, as Valentine is near....  So I tried to make a girlie gift of it, with some old wallpaper and a chiffon ribbon. 

I also made a brooch.  I crocheted a circle in metal goldthread and finished it with some beads.  In the centre there is one of the buttons.  Looks at its best on a dark surface.  But there wasn't enough light today to make a dark picture.  So here it is on a white suface.
