I purchase my buttons from Wal-Mart, Oriental Trading and flea markets and the rest of my supplies from Oriental Trading.
I first lay out my pattern for the necklace.
Then I drill a hole in the button at the top to insert ring for your cording.
I glue the middle button to the big button and let dry then I glue the small button on top of the big and middle button and let dry.
Then I add my cording thru the ring and add the lobster clap.
I also buy buttons like the smiley face and cut off the back connector that you would use if you were sewing button on a garment and sand down to its flat on the back so you can glue it to a bigger button.
