Button as pendant

When looking at buttons in the nearby craft and embroidery shop, I stumbled over this fun thing. Yes, it's a button made of a wooden ball with a simple wire loop bail glued to it. I bought one of them, choosing a mid-sized dark brown coloured button from the three different sizes and just as many colours available. Think it might make a fun pendant, an alternative to putting a wooden bead on a headpin. Not as cheap as using a bead and headpin, but you eliminate the problem with headpin "heads" being too small for the -- usually -- large holes in the wooden beads.

I'm not sure how easy it is to find wooden balls to make a few of these buttons/pendants yourself, though. That might be a cheaper option if you can find the supplies.
