Button Designs

MaryAnn Carroll
Sometime ago, I first saw buttons used as clasps, rings and more. What a fun way to finish off a unique piece! Today I am sharing some designs using buttons.

And what better way to include buttons in your designs than using handmade buttons?

So, what do you think? Have you ever thought of using buttons in your designs. If you have, feel free to share links where we can see them.

As always, Thank-you for supporting those who create handmade with handmade.

Oh my...the jewelry is absolutely beautiful! I have had others buy buttons from me for jewelry, but never saw the end results.

Great post...thanks so much for including my work~~

I love using buttons for clasps. I have a large collection of vintage German glass buttons, but I've also used artisan-made buttons, as well (no example of art buttons in my shop at the moment though). Here are a couple of my button clasp bracelets:

I have a huge bag of my great grandmother's buttons. She was a tailor. I even use them for focal beads in my art. Can't go wrong with buttons.
