Bright as a Button Ring

So, I've been doing wire wrap jewelry for a little while now and while wire and crystal are still my favorite kind of jewelry to make (so far), I recently tried using buttons in my rings and they were adorable!  I proceeded to make a couple dozen more, trying out different color combinations, sizes and wire wrapping techniques.  For your edification, ClockQuirkians, here are my favorites:

This is the simplest design, but I love the colors.  I tried a lot of different pairings, all of which I like, but these two got extra big smiles.
I love spirals in wire work, so I had to come up with a way to use it in my button rings.  Love how it turned out!

More spirals, but a different kind this time.  Coils are such an aesthetic design detail and so much fun to make!

We have a large selection of button rings available in our Tweely shop.

Sock Monkey in the Middle

Bonnie (Mom to me) has proven that my status as Maitresse de Crochet is an inherited title!  She has created the cutest animal hats, and she did it with her crochet hook!  They were originally made as baby gifts for several friends who have brand new little ones, but they were just too cute to keep to herself.  Now you can find them in the Tweely shop here.  Too cute!!

It all started with a sock monkey.  You'll notice in our shop that sock monkeys are kind of a thing for us.  When Bonnie needed a baby gift, she decided to try making a hat and what better inspiration than our buddy the sock monkey?

We have a special soft spot for pink sock monkeys because we give a portion of the proceeds to breast cancer research.  They were the inspiration for this pink monkey hat made for a little baby girl.

The monkeys came out so great that a bear seemed the obvious next step.  This adorable teddy hat is as cozy as it is cute!

This was a total brain wave on Mom's part.  I love his ears!!  And zebra stripes are soooooo fashionable. :-)
