button necklace 2

I spotted these gorgeous buttons on ebay and just had to have them - I didn't know what I was going to do with them but I HAD to have them! (Do you get like that or is it just me?). Anyway, after making Bethany's button necklace, I thought I'd have a go at making one for myself. I chose 7 buttons, which was very tricky let me tell you; they are all so lovely. I just threaded a large needle with some gorgeous organza ribbon and started threading it through the holes; with the four hole buttons I did it twice in a x - I always stitch 4 hole buttons that way. When I finished I attached a clasp and there we have it!
