Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Right Angle Weave, Fringing, Peyote Stitch, Stringing

Pattern Description:

Make this quick and easy button necklace in less than two hours time! All illustrations created entirely in Photoshop by yours truly.

Are you like me? Do you have an enormous stash of buttons that are just begging to be used. Turn them into a gorgeous necklace! Coordinate with your outfit to create a look that matches anything in your wardrobe.

None. This tutorial is for personal or commercial use. After researching long and hard on the subject of copyright laws within the United States, I have come to the following conclusions:

1. Any set of written instructions (jewelry tutorials, recipes, and sewing patterns included) do not qualify for copyright protection.

2. Taking item #1 into consideration, it is pointless for me to be one of those designers who wrongly assumes ownership of property in spite of what the laws state.

3. The internet will eat anything and everything, therefore I have no control over anything I upload here.

4. With that said, anyone who purchases this tutorial is welcome to make as many items as they wish from the instructions. You are welcome to sell any pieces created from these instructions. You are welcome to *gasp* teach this design anywhere you so choose. You are welcome to *gasp again* upload this tutorial anywhere you want and attempt to take credit for it if you feel like stealing. Pretty much the only thing you can't do with this tutorial is consume it whole, unless you want to go to the bother of printing it out and desperately crave the taste of laser inked paper.

Happy Shopping! <3
