Crafty jewelry: Button Bib Necklace tutorial

Beading, buttons, jewelry, necklace  |  October 4th 2011  |  0 Comment

This is what we are going to make today:

A button bib necklace!

This is a project I’ve had in the back of my mind for a long time. I’m so happy to have finally gotten a chance to put it together!
My main 2 supplies for this project were the shell buttons (1 pack) and some crochet thread.
Aren’t the shell buttons beautiful?

And did I mention that I got them for half off? Even better!
Gorgeous, right?

Okay, okay… I’m done with the gratuitous button pictures. For now!
I love the texture of the of the crochet thread over plain sewing thread.
First things first, I grabbed a scrap piece of white felt and did a dry run arranging my buttons how I would want them on the necklace. I stacked some of the buttons for more dimension.
After deciding where I wanted the buttons to go, I started threading the crochet thread through them, adhering the thread to the back of the buttons with Fabri-Tac.
I started resetting up my necklace as I laced the thread through the buttons.
Eventually I had them all laid out and promptly adhered them to the felt with more Fabri-Tac.
Next up was trimming the felt so it wouldn’t show on the front of my necklace.
I left two pieces of long felt in each corner so I will have something to work with when I attach the chain to the necklace.
I trimmed the excess felt so that it was skinny enough to slide a jump ring on it. Then I simply folded the felt back on itself and glued it down.

Attach the chain of your choice and…
Tada! Completed necklace!
I have to say I really love this necklace! It turned out even better than I had pictured it in my head.
