Button Bracelets

kudzukweenAugust 27, 2008

I saw these on somewhere on the net,and had to make some for myself and sisters. Dig into the old button jar,find some jump rings ahd bead pins.....and ta-dah....the one with pearls is for youngest sister,the one with pink beads for next to youngest. I want one all pearly buttons for myself :) Very quick project, and a great gift, I think. Gonna post it on Crafts and Decorations,too.

Thanks ya'll...they are easy, the first ones I used jump rings to connect them to each other with beads in between the buttons. The last one I used a length of silver plated chain, and some bead wire, some pearly and translucent buttons,and some clear acrylic beads that came off beaded ribbon scraps,with a toggle clasp on the end. It was very hard to get a pic of this one,but maybe you can see it. I've since found so many different ways to make a button bracelet, and will most likely make them,too.

"Well, I have seen it all!"
I just donated a bunch of blouses to charity.
They had the cutest buttons on them - and now,
I feel sick! These are beautiful bracelets.
Thanks for sharing the pictures.

I forgot to come on last mon. to tell you how cute our bracelets came out. I didn't do much but supply the buttons GF did it with jump rings & the long pins with loop at end, don't remember what they are called. I just love mine & will go with lot of outfits.It's sq. pearly buttons, gold beads & blue &gold swirly beads. Her's is red white & blue. I'll take my camera next mon. so can get pic but still need DD to help me get pics all in album & then on photo bucket. We will make more as I went through some stuff & found more pearly looking ones. We're hooked!! Thanks for great idea!! Jan
