I’ve been admiring other people’s necklaces.
Often surreptitiously in shopping centres and other public places.
Necklaces like this one made of buttons – lots of buttons!
So I made one!
I bought a bag of coordinated buttons from Spotlight and used some embroidery floss I already had. I didn’t have the jewellery fixings that were recommended in the video, so I made do with a couple of silver slip rings and some thin ribbon repurposed from a T-shirt. I also threaded my buttons a little differently. But I was originally inspired by the video below – I just made a few changes as I went along!
It was a lovely afternoon of playing with buttons. Now I’m itching to make a second one in reds.
