A billion buttons and what to do with them all…? Some match, some don’t. I prefer it when things don’t. I don’t do matching very well and I wasn’t about to waste my time sorting them all out.
I’d seen a friend with a simple multi-coloured wrap-around necklace with little buttons hanging off it; it was very striking and looked easy enough to make. I decided to use only transparent glass beads so the buttons would be more prominent. I’d also planned to make it long enough to wrap round three times but I got the measurements wrong so I get four wraps out of it!
I hope the close-ups make it clear how to get the buttons to hang loose – in case anyone else who’s been hoarding buttons wants to try their hand.
Apologies for the lousy pics, we aren’t getting much natural light this winter. But soon, soon….it will be spring :)
