Vinyard Toggles

Vinyard Heart Toggle Clasp Design - Bright Pewter Finish

While trying to figure out how to use the beautiful relief of three dimensional texture from the antique buttons, I thought it might be fun to try creating them into clasps or closures.

These two are created from the vinyard button round I've been casting lately.

I like the natural look of them, and the beautiful detail on the patterns.

What do you think ... I'd love to see some of you try them out!
Vinyard Oval Toggle Clasp Design - Bright Pewter Finish

I was checking out the Etsy Tech info and saw that the Etsy shop home pages are about to have a makeover. All the changes seem like good improvements.

The pages will be wider and the gallery pictures show up larger.

There will be four featured items at the top instead of three.

Twenty-four items per page instead of twenty-one.

The Announcement section will be condensed, so it doesn't drop down the page so far.

Here's a link to the list of changes and improvements, if you want to read it all!

Looks like these will be rolling out very soon ...

These are lovely, Lynn. Don't you just love being able to follow through ideas that build on each other?

I've just seen the Etsy changes. I like how the images are larger. Good thing! But the shop announcement will take some getting used to. But all in all I think it's good.

I checked out my shop this morning to see the changes. I think I like them.

It will take some getting used to looking for things in a different place.

Thanks for the kind words, friends. I am giving myself permission to make a bracelet on Friday!
