Button Me Up

by: Jennifer Tough

Some of you may remember Dwyn's blog post showing how to make rapid loops. I used that technique to quickly whip up the little flower dangles, prior to stringing them on this bracelet.

For the closure, I decided to use one of our newish steampunk buttons. Buttons work wonderfully as closures for bracelets. Similar to toggles, they're easy to get on and off yourself, without having to ask someone else for assistance.

For the closure, create a loop with seedbeads. After you string on your last bead, string on a crimp, enough seedbeads to form a snug loop, then go back through the crimp. Test your loop before you crimp it tight :-)
