What to do with Buttons
I had a request for info on what to do with buttons in jewelry design. Besides using them as dangles or earrings or focals on a piece (just string them on the beading wire, and use some bicones to hold them in place), you can also use them as clasps. I used a shank button and my aqua rainbow beads to make a bracelet for my sister-in-law's birthday. This button was from Fusion Beads - they have some nice ones! I also made my mom a bracelet with a Scotty Dog button and some black decorated beads (mine, of course!).
