Sea Button Turquoise Braided Seed Beads


About this design:

My husband's 90 year old mother had passed on and she had a bunch of old buttons that were passed on to me. This button(if you can see it) has all sorts of sea creatures and that inspired me to make this bracelet.

Components:

I used turquoise waxed linen and turquoise seed beads and braided them on (using my instructions from my other Braided Wax Linen Seed Bead Bracelets) and I used the special button which means a lot to me. Lisa LaBarre-Kurz

    Fabulous way to re-purpose this button. So stinkin’ cute with those sea creatures in it. And it holds a lovely memory of who owned this button before it was passed on to you. Hopefully there are more you’ll be able to use. :)

    Wow! I love old buttons and have a collection of buttons given to me from my mom. Great idea. I had been thinking about a wrap bracelet, but love the braided and the colors.
