Yesterday, while shopping, I found this at Gina Tricot (a Swedish store, http://www.ginatricot.se).



I did want to buy this cute necklace as well, but it was 99 kronor (about 10 euros), and I could make it myself for free (we have lots of buttons lying around).


 I never thought of this technique. I'm quite sure someone else here did (you're all genius) but I still wanted to share. Every other button is reversed, which seems like a good way to keep them from moving. My explanation doesn't really make any sense, but maybe this photo does?

Yay! I (or Gina Tricot) inspired someone Smiley
It'd be nice if you could share the results... (I will, as soon as I get the time to try it).

Is that all one single strand of thread?  It looks a little scary like that - like if you snagged it, they'd all fly off in every direction and roll away forever.  Or am I missing some way they're more security attached to each other?
