Phone Wire Jewelry

I have had these buttons for years. I believe I bought them when Ashley was little thinking I would make her a dress or something and use them.  If you look at the upper left hand side of the picture, you will also see some wire.  This wire came from my dad. He has quite a bit of it and gave me some. It is actually old telephone wire from the Kennedy Space Center. Years ago, like in the late 60's early 70's they were redoing the telephone wire, and there was gobs of this stuff in the trash. My dad asked if he could have some, and they told him to take as much as he wanted, so he did.  I can remember making jewelry with it as a kid. 

 Halloween is coming up, and I wanted to make some jewelry to wear during this fun time of year. I decided to use the phone wire with these buttons. Now, what?  At first I thought about putting them into a necklace, but it was a bit much. So this is what I came up with:

A pair of bat earrings,

spiders and their web, 

                                                           and some orange buttons!

I was on a roll.  I started going through my stash and came across some crosses someone gave me last year. I thought, "Hmmmmm, I wonder what these would look like with the phone wire." And this is what I came up with :

                                                                    So, what do you think?
