Button Jewelry

, Freelance Writer

Create your new favorite charm bracelet, necklace, and earrings using your own contemporary or vintage sew-through craft buttons in any size or style. Using basic wire-wrapping techniques, you’ll make beautifully customized jewelry pieces to give as gifts or wear again and again. This class is beginner-friendly for ages 12 and up.

Pliers and tools will be provided, but please bring:

  • Sew-through buttons (2 for earrings, 8-20 for necklaces, about 12 for charm bracelets)
  • Chain (7” for bracelet, 18” or longer for each necklace)
  • Clasp (1 for each bracelet or necklace)
  • Small jump rings (2 for each bracelet or necklace)
  • Earring wires (2 for each pair of earrings)
  • One spool 24-gauge craft wire in the color/metal of your choice

In Portland, I recommend going to Dava Bead for your findings and other supplies. If you would like to purchase materials online, check out Fire Mountain Gems or Rings-Things
