Thanks ya'll! Here is one I made yesterday...this one is made with a length of silver plated chain,really inexpensive at Walmart. I twisted wire onto some buttons, and some acrylic beads leftover from beaded ribbon,they look like small prisms! It's not heavy, I like the ones with lots of buttons on them, much like a charm bracelet!

I made a few more waiting out the hurricane :) My grandson even made one for his mama with white elastic cord threaded over and under the buttons,with a heart shaped button in the center. We tied it off with crimp beads, and it slips on over the hand. He had a great time choosing buttons in solid colors with a few pearly ones here and there. Then he made one for himself with black rattail cord, using a silver metal heavy button tied with knots on each side of the button,and the ends tied in knots,to slip over his hand....he wore it to school and promptly got it taken away by his teacher, LOL! He was bad,took it off and was swinging it, I should have foreseen that,coming from a boy who just turned 5 years old last week.
I made 2 with white and pearly buttons, no beads, and I made 1 with pearly pastel shank buttons,no beads.

These are beautiful...I have a huge jar of vintage and antique buttons, and I am going to try my hand at making one. Wonderful idea, thanks!

RE: Button Bracelets

Thanks ya'll! These are so easy. You can buy something like 5 feet of silver plated chain at Walmart for $2.97, and some matching bead pins, I think 72 pieces in a package, about $2.97, and that will make a lot of bracelets. You'll also need some toggles or claw clasps, something to close the bracelet. And maybe jump rings. Everything is about $3 a package, or buy a kit, which is $10 or so. You'll need some small pliers, I use 2 pair of pliers. I use the silvery bead pins with the eye on the one end, and I thread it through the button, then wrap it through the middle, and hook it on the chain with the eye. I just like the way it looks, you can do it any way you want to. There's so many pretty designs out there.
You could make a lot of Christmas presents out of those supplies,lol. You can make jewelry,too :)

Those are wonderful, I have lots of buttons plus probably all the other stuff to make some. Am always picking up stuff like that on clearance intending to do something...someday, now's the time. Those would make great gifts for some grand daughters. Thanks for the idea and the pics.
