Personal Appearance Beaded Zipper Pulls

Project Description

What are you most proud of? See fabric inspiration photo-- My challenge is to color match the fabric and reinterpret them in polymer clay buttons and beads. When I sit down to make beads and buttons, I usually make 40-50 at a time--from two or three inspiration fabrics. I like to feature the inspiration fabric as handbag linings and pockets, and have the beads and buttons make their personal appearance on a solid color exterior fabric. In this case--I'm making several classic solid black linen handbags with this zentangle inspired black/orange/brown printed cotton for the lining. These beads and buttons are little pieces of art. Beyond that--they feel great in the hand--and add great function attached to the little key on zippers.
