Jewelry making with buttons

 

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.

 

 

Metallic buttons:

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.

 

 

Next time you are looking for the right element that will make the difference between an ordinary jewelry piece to a unique and rich looking item, you are welcome to explore the button's world of possibilities.

 

Have fun creating!
