I'd like to see one on making buttons. yup boro buttons. that would be good. also saw something called "moving mud" that was well like a glass buckle made with a free formed disk with a large round hole and a straight piece that looked separate. some how makes a closure for things like leather bags, sweaters etc. be cool to see how to make them also. Pretty much I enjoy any tutorials that show up here.

Rob that's interesting! Haven't seen those before.

Okay so if you guys have any ideas of who we can ask for tutorials Kare and I are more than happy to send out the requests. As of right now I think we're pretty much at the end of our list of willing teachers. Any ideas out there?

ummm I don't know who to ask. Have you tried bribing them? feel free to promise that if they do a tutorial I'll nev er show up and inflict raspberries on them

Rob.

Ps. I think I could figure out how to make them if I could figure out how they work. but I can't do that until I make one to see how it works. vicious circle.

Hey Rob - those look quite similar to hair things. I'm sure if you go to your pharmacy, and look in the girlie section of hair stuff, you'll see them - they're usually made with ugly, cheap plastic. Although for hair they are somewhat curved, the concept is the same...

rob, thanks for the ideas !
We will look for some tutorials on seahorses, buttons and togle closures.
The only seahorses I found so far is for soft.
The togle looks like a mashed circle. I'll try to play today and see what comes out.

what did you do to your hand?

I didn't feel like or think I was being blown off. I figured out years ago that if people are doing me a favor that its always worth waiting for.
If anyone (first) nows how the closures work and (second) can explain that well I may be able to make them all by my self. I'm just lost on that. what I see is a disk and a stick and that just doesn't equal a buckle in my mind. I did go look at the hair things and they do look sort of like what I see in that picture. Can't see how they work either. I've never really paid any attention to hair thingies before.


Rob.

The way that I've seen them work is the fabric comes up through the hole in the round part. The stick then sticks through that fabric twice (coming out the other side) and then rests on top of the circle part. I'm not sure how they'd be used as cufflinks or buckles though.

I thought it may be to your advantage to know I am hosting a boro bulk buy in the Bulk buy section of the garage sale. All the information as well as cost per lb is there. This is boro case pricing so you are getting a good deal.
No-buy-in-fee

Thanks!

Rob thanks, I hate when I say I'm going do something and then don't.
I smacked my wrist pretty hard. A week later still black and blue and swollen. Good news not broken.

The color in my sig bead is Momka stormy weather with some clear. started out with a pre mix tip and wasn't happy and changed to a surface mixed tip to finish. Used a clear stringer for swirls the color change is heat. Note have changed signature the current picture is Momka Cherry Blossom-lots of heat and marvering.

Rob, not sure if this will help. You could pull the fabric, or what ever, in front of or in back of the "stick."

that does help me get an clearer image. doesn't look like they will work as a buckle. they look like they are basically on the idea of a fibula. well back to hunting for a way to make something out of glass that will work as a "buckle"

hey rob u can make the buckle thing up top as a toggle closure, if that makes sense. i can try do a rough sketch if you tell me how to upload it to the thread. if u do it as a toggle it would work more like a button and less like a buckle. it would be almost exactly like what kare posted cept u wouldnt attach the middle line thingy to the circle- it would be a long button that comes out and thru sorta like some coats have. u wouldnt really have to do the circle if they had a button hole for it to go thru but if u wanted to have matching findings on both sides for ur project then yea u could make a matchin circle for the female end of the button. like this -> o (female side) / (long toggle thing.. u could do it as a long bead, or a long shape wit a lil loop in the middle for them to thread it) .. ok can someone tell me how to upload a picture i think itd be a lot easier to show u.. or u can also just make a normal button if u make a disk and then punty up to the bottom of it, and stab some button holes wit a tungsten pick.

Jojo- got baby poop from the premix. was irritated because its a large bead and a lot of glass so I changed back to my normal tip and got really lucky.

To load, a couple of ways but...I click "go advanced" then page doen to the "manage attachments" and click there.
Click one of the browse buttons. After you select you pictures click the up load. When it tells you it is done uploading you can close that pop-up screen and go on with your post.

If you attached the cross piece to the circle it could work as a buckle of sorts. or a to scale hook and eye?

I'm not sure how Dawn posted other tuts from over on the WC site, but, given the ones that I did are pretty image heavy...probably would be a lot of work to transfer. So here is a link to the pulling points and blown bead tutorials. They start mid way down the page. http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show...=445124&page=3
