Button Bracelets

Some Button Bangle Bracelets
Elastic Button Bracelets with Doll Face Buttons

This afternoon is the March meeting of our new fiber arts group, Wild Bee, and I will be showing members how I make elastic button bracelets as one of the projects. I'm sharing some of my buttons with them to use to learn how to make the bracelets and then they can make others later from their own personal button collections. What a great way to use those beautiful and special buttons we all tend to collect and be able to wear them and show them off!
I'm now starting to use chains and jump rings with the buttons to make some neat looking necklaces and earrings. What fun! And, the buttons just keep coming as my husband finds more on Ebay to add to my growing collection. Looks like I am going to have to find an outlet for my button jewelry pieces now. : )

  1. Hello Joyce,
    I've enjoyed reading your blogs, they are very inspiring to me. I love the button bracelets and seeing your new pieces. I feel so blessed to have one of my very own. Many people recognized the doll you made of me. It was fun to see smiles on peoples faces as they observed her and were awed by your work.
