Inspired by the crazy button-ness in the most recent issue of Adorn, I randomly decided to make a button bracelet today.  I have a lot of buttons that my grandmother's friend gave me a few years ago, so I think this is a nice little thing by which I can remember her. 

I had the fishing line and the clasp just lying around, and had bought the beads for another project but ended up not needing them.  I just threaded and re-threaded the buttons until the bracelet had roughly the shape I wanted.  It's not as flat as I'd like it to be, but otherwise I'm quite happy with the results.

"Action" shot (I'm as white as the buttons!)
