Whilst in New Zealand last week, a friend of mine bought a necklace made from buttons, it was so pretty, and I was wondering if there were any craft books out on how to make them or do you have any suggestions or a pattern. They were on wires and so attractive to wear with casual wear. Thank you,
Cord can be threaded though the holes on a button and knotted on each side to hold the button in place. Wire can be passed through the holes of a button and then used to attach it to beading wire or a chain. There is a finding called a button converter that you attach to buttons using adhesive and then use the assembly as a pendant on a chain or attached to a necklace.
