Buffalo Gray

About this design:

First of all I love the buffalo nickle finding the right color of beads and cord was the trick. I think that the gray cord highlighted by the multicolored beads make this a hit.


Buffalo Nickle button ~ Gray cording ~ multi colored beads with brown, green & grays. Thread.

    I often wondered how rondelles would work in this type of design. They’re awesome! :-)
    Great design, great choice of gems and leather to show off the button! Thank you for showing it to us!

    I love this braclet. Several reasons, but one is because my father, who passed away in ’97, collected coins and his favorite was the buffalo nickel. Now they are mine.
