Best thing about buttons:
The best thing about buttons is that they are designed to create the most beautiful impression in one small surface, it can be a decorated surface, different patterns, nice colors or interesting textures. This makes them perfect to use when creating fashion jewelry pieces.
Here you can see GITA's wide collection of unique plastic and metal buttons.
The low cost of these elements makes them a really good option of embedding in cup chain alongside glass stones and Swarovski crystals, for creating colorful, stylish and not so expensive jewelry pieces.
When you embed the metallic buttons in a metal base it is recommended not to match between them.
For example, if you have an antique gold decorated button you can embed it into an antique silver plated centerpiece and it will stand out more and add a metallic color without competing with the real metal color that most of the times will not be a complete match.
As in this jewelry pieces, I used the golden metallic buttons with antique silver plated base and added a touch of vintage rose crystals. This creates a nice urban trendy and beautiful look.
Two hole buttons:
These very simple to make but looks charming necklaces are made with buttons that have two holes in them.
Here are 4 ideas for how to use buttons with holes in them:
1. Embed them in a stone setting and glue two crystals in the small holes in the middel.
2. Use big size jump rings to hang the buttons from the top hole on a chain and then with another big jump ring hand a charm or a stone setting from the lower hole of the button.
3. Slide the buttons on a colorful string as you would do to any bead. You can make a surface by placing them close together to form a centerpiece.
4. Use a very delicate metal chain that can slide through the holes of the button and connect the small chain to stone settings to continue the necklace.
