Button Jewelry Doubles as a Memento

Buttons Button jewelry is fun and easy to make by stringing interesting buttons onto cording and braiding or weaving the cords. It becomes even more special if the buttons come from a sentimental source, like a grandparent’s memorable cardigan or dress. These are all vintage buttons from relatives’ clothing. The leather braid makes it sporty; use something shiny such as rat tail cord to make it glamorous. This is a fast and easy project that’s appropriate for all ages.
