Button Bracelets

I found this idea on Creative Passage and fell in love!!  These bracelets are sooo adorable and so easy to make!  Just a chain, jump rings, and buttons.  You can easily tailor these to your own tastes just by using whatever buttons suit your fancy.  I really like those clam shell buttons - they came out so beautiful:

This was the first one I made…I used vintage buttons in blues and some new clamshell round buttons in a teal shade and a light blue shade(thank you JoAnns!)
And then there is this bracelet with the stamped words…imagine, strength, passion, integrity, focus.  I have had these rings for a while, just waiting for the perfect project.
And lastly, one that is made entirely of natural clamshell buttons (rectangles and three sizes of round buttons) and a few off center clamshell beads.   The base bracelet is a smaller more delicate chain.  Anyway, I have not yet finished!  I have lots more ideas for these bracelets…hmmm, thinking Christmas presents?
