I searched out buttons from my stash, and ribbons too in colour coordinating colours and was happy to make a start on it. It's not usually the type of jewellery I make, so I was lucky to have everything for it without having to go to the craft store (which is a good thing, otherwise I would have bought lots from the craft store that I do not need! *lol* )
What you need ...
- One bunch - Emroidery Silk
- 40cms - Ribbon
- 26-32 approx - 4 hole buttons (the amount of buttons of course depends on the desired bracelet length and the size of the buttons)
- Big Eye Needle
I built up sections, 2 buttons with an individual tied connection with the embroidery silk. I tried doing many weaves through many buttons, but I ended up either in a tangled mess, or the structure of it was too weak. So, through trial and error, individual blocks of 2 gave it a strong structure (remember also to tie the string tight)
I built up these buttons up to the desired length of the bracelet. Connecting each button to the next with embroidery silk.
Simple eh? Well - almost there ... Now it's time for the ribbon. Which is used as a nice design feature as well as your "clasp" As it is also used to fastne the bracelet when worn.
Weave through the buttons, like above - and there you have it!
A cute, simple button bracelet.
