I love shopping with my sister. We go to different shops that I would never go to on my own, and come across really funky things. One trip a necklace caught our eye – very cool button choker.
We ooed and ahhed over a number of different colour versions – they really were fantastic – and expensive. We whispered to each other that we could make that – as you do. But this time I did, I could only find suitable buttons in black and white in my collection – but they worked fine. Finding the right buttons would be the trick as a number of big buttons are needed.
So I found some buttons, and fortunately I already had lots of beads so had eveything needed. The necklace is made with two pieces of wire/tiger tail. Both threads go through the small beads together, one of the threads branches up and through the button stack and back down to join the other thread going through the small beads.
