Lately, this is how I have been sewing flat bottom buttons onto my peyote bracelets. I didn’t always do it this way and worried about the strain and stress on the beads.
First, I do a test run to see exactly where the button should go. Which means I have needle and thread coming out of both ends of the bracelet. I decide on the numbers of beads needed for the loop at the same time I am selecting the button.
Once placement is out of the way, I reinforce the button-holding-beads.
Next, I build a pedestal.
Depending on the thickness of the beaded loop, sometimes I go with two beads stacked. Sometimes just one. The height allows for easy on, easy off.
I created this bracelet by starting off with “bead soup”, mixing together leftover beads.
Just wanted to show you how I do it. How do YOU do it?
That is, add buttons to your beaded bracelets. 😀
