Buttons are my obsession
I obviously have a button obsession. My boyfriend got me three of these buttons on different occasions, I'm using one for this necklace! :) Enjoy

PS I ranked this so-so because it was so tedious working with the small bits. I kept losing beads! Lol

  • Step 1

    First, figure out how long you want the necklace, because it should dangle a bit on your chest. Then cut the chain that length.

  • Step 2

    drill holes in the button, one on top and one on bottom. Attach a jump ring to the top and two on bottom.

  • Step 3

    Attach chain to the top of necklace.

  • Step 4

    from a desired spot (like I said, a comfortable length, we're all different) attach chains. I put mine about an inch and a half from the button. And attach the bottom of these chains to the top jump ring on the hole on the bottom of the button

    Step 5

    Now you should have those two dangly chains (please extend photo) So, deattach chain one, apply a jump ring. Place two pony beads on the other side of that chain you just deattached and then reattach the chain to the jump ring. Let the beads run down the chain closest to the jump ring and deattach the chain again and apply the other jump ring. This causes the beads to not "roam" up and down the chain.

    Repeat for side 2.

    Attach a CM of chain to the other bottom jump ring, and attach a charm, (I used a heart) to the bottom.

    To the left side of the chain, I got a bit of wire and spelled out the word "Hello" and attached it onto the chain for even MORE flair! lol

  • Step 8

    Apply a clasp, and there ya go! :)
