Whoever thought of using old buttons as jewelry, kudos to you. It's smart. Buttons are like beads, they have holes. The holes make it easy to string jump rings through. I wanted to upcycle some buttons and it resulted in sprucing up an old charm bracelet.

Here's what you will need:

  • Bracelet chain
  • Vintage buttons
  • Jump rings

Instructions for making the bracelet:

  1. Add jump rings to your buttons
  2. Add jump rings with attached buttons to your bracelet chain
  3. Done.

Yes, basically all you need is a chain, buttons and jump rings (I also used tweezers to ply open the jump rings but I'm sure there's a designated jewelry makers tool I'm unaware of).

I found a cute vintage charm bracelet on  EBay awhile back, that I thought was perfect for this since it has a few charms leaving enough spaces for the buttons to fill. I do want to make it more bulky though. When I find more cool vintage buttons then it'll be nice and full o' charms. Until then, this is what I got going, check it yo.
