So I have gone a little vintage button crazy. I came across a jewelry line that uses antique and vintage buttons. They are so cool looking! So I thought I would make a few pieces (ok so a little more than a few…) Hey, its a creative outlet right? Anyway one of may favorite and easiest pieces to make was this button bracelet. This one is made out of vintage looking plastic buttons that I picked up at a craft store. You can do this with just about any kind of button as long as it can fit on the finding that you use.
Button Bracelet supplies
Some cute charms that have holes on two ends
jump rings or some kind of connector links
a lobster clasp
and my pliers and crimpers
I used 6 charms and made the bracelet a little big for my wrist, so you probably can get away with 5 and add a bead or something on the end to lengthen it a bit.
First decide what buttons to use, make sure they will fit in the charm or on top. If some of them have shanks on them use some wire cutters to cut them off. The plastic ones I used make it easy to get them off.
Now just glue to buttons on.
Wait a few hours or a day to let the glue dry, then using the jump rings or some kind of link to connect put them together.
Now add your lobster claps and some kind of ring for it connect to. Ok your done! Now go admire your work and enjoy the compliments!
