DIY ~ Vintage Button Charm Bracelet

Hi lovelies!  I hope your weekend was fabulous!  My mom recently sent me a box of some random yet absolutely amazing goodies, and included was a huge bag full of vintage buttons!  Inspired by this coach bracelet (no longer available), I knew I could easily recreate it!  {Click for the how-to!}

You'll need:

  • 12mm chain (this exact one, from M&J Trimming!)
  • Toggle clasp
  • Large jump rings (9mm)
  • Lots of vintage buttons

Start by attaching your clasp to the chain.

Begin adding buttons by attaching a jump ring to the shank on the back and linking it to the chain.  I started with the largest ones and spread them out, then filled in with the smaller ones.

I ended up doing one button on each side of each chain link, you can see the back above.

So pretty!

The best part of this bracelet is that it is completely unique!  I stuck with a gold theme, but you could easily switch it up using fabric covered buttons, or pearl ones, etc.
