Button and Bead Bar Necklace DIY tutorial to share with you guys!
What I adore is to create jewels with common and uncommon materials. For example, have you ever thought that buttons can be combined beautifully with gemstone beads creating a dainty bar necklace? Let’s see how to create this horizontal bar necklace and I bet it’s perfect to wear it alone or stack it with more gorgeous necklaces.
Materials needed for Button Beaded Bar Necklace:
Gemstone beads ( I have used a large bead from white volcanic lava and two beads from lilac agate)
Gold Plated Chain
Gold Plated jump Rings
Gold Plated Round Lobster
Step 1: Let’s prepare the beaded part of the jewel. In case you do not have an eyepin (like I did) just cut the ends of the pin you have and create with the round nose plier two rings.
Pass the beads and the buttons in the pin ( I have passed the lilac agate, then two wooden buttons, then the lava bead and then the two buttons and and the lilac agate bead again) and your bar is ready!
Step 2: Cut a piece of the chain in a length smaller than the desired final length (just do not forget that lobster and jump rings and the beaded bar will add more length in your jewel). Use a jump ring and connect the beaded bar with the gold plated chain. Repeat this for both ends.
Step 3: Check where is the middle of the chain and cut it. Use again two jump rings to connect the chain with round lobster (or any lobster).
The pretty horizontal bar necklace is ready!
What do you think? I think that buttons were combined so beautiful with the gems! And when you wear it…none will realize that you have buttons on your beaded bar necklace!
