Buttons & Beads

I've not been playing with paper these last few weeks. I have a sudden need to try something new and different. I got my beads out and got hold of some buttons off ebay. I went a bit bead crazy a few years ago and luckily they don't go off. Here's my new bracelet, a mix of czeck and indian glass.
This is my first button necklace, I'm going to take it apart and thread it onto something a bit stronger, I just don't think that the clear beading thread is going to take the weight. This mark two one is on a cotton cord. Much stronger. I still need to work on the technique but I love the shape when it's on.
Long weekends of crafting... bliss :)
