Follow a few easy steps and make these simple and elegant button pendants in no time! Great idea to recycle leftover buttons!
What you need
Button, Craft wire and Jewelry pliers.
Step-1: Cut a small piece of wire, around 6-8 inches should work. Make a small loop on any one side of the wire. Circle the wire 1-2 times around the loop to create a twirl pattern.
Step-2: Insert the open end of the twirled wire into a hole of the button. Bend the twirled part upwards and fix it below the button hole, on the front. Again insert the open end through the other button hole.
Step-3: With the remaining wire create a big loop and coil the rest of the wire below the big loop. Cut off extra wire if needed. Attach the pendant with a string or chain and enjoy!
What you need
small craft frame
small pictures (or magazine cut-outs)
paint (or nail polish)
a hot glue gun
This Jewelry making project shows you how to make a necklace pendant using a small craft frame.
1. Pop the insert out of the frame and use as a template. Cut pictures from magazines or family portraits to fit your template & glue onto paper making a collage. You can use a pretty tissue paper as a background ( I used silver tissue paper).
2.You may want to paint the outside of the frame. I used black nail polish, it looks nice and shiny.
3. Add buttons, beads, or rhinestones to the frame. You can also glue ribbon flowers or bows onto the frame. The possibilities are endless.
4. Add the chain to the frame and pop you picture collage inside.
