Starfish Buttons Now In My Etsy Store!

So I have some good news and some bad news. Since I always like hearing the bad news first, I'll start with that: My sale on porcelain buttons in my etsy store is now officially over.
I was running a special throughout the month of May, with sets of three medium-size porcelain buttons for $18 per set. A couple of folks took advantage of the sale, but it's now June, so I've taken out the buttons that were left in my etsy store. I'm getting ready to send them to my sales reps so they can take them to various yarn stores across the US.
But here's some good news: For a limited time, I'm offering my large (nearly 4 inches in diameter) handmade starfish buttons for sale in my etsy store. They are $18 each, and are offered in several stunning glaze colors.
Smoky gray-blue, deep blood-red, pale sky-blue, mossy green-black, yellow ochre, and deep lapis-blue. Yummy!
These buttons are big and bold, more suitable for embellishing than buttoning your handmade art-to-wear, mixed-media art, basketry, or other handmade arts and crafts. They are made from smooth white porcelain, high-fired to over 2200 degrees. I used gorgeous unleaded glazes that came out quite beautiful in my latest kiln batch. The backsides are smooth, unglazed, and polished to avoid snagging on fabrics. The holes are also smooth and unlikely to fray your thread. I do suggest using a strong yarn or thread to attach these buttons because they're a bit heavy.
You can see how big they are:
Enjoy!

Fantastic! Nice to see you maximizing the avenue of your online store to increase awareness and visibility for your brand. You would probably expand it further in the future, and give more folks some finer jewelry for their collections. I'm wishing you luck on that!
