Making jewellery out of buttons

Yesterday I taught the button jewellery taster class at the London Jewellery School. It's good fun and a great way of upcycling what you've got in your button box! The class is great because you make a bracelet, earrings and a necklace and you have lots of colours to choose from!

You can see some of the students work in progress here, including a necklace inspired by the Ikea colours! And check out that button bracelet, Van's first project (she's wearing it in the photo, top right)

If you can't join me for a class do have a look at the 20 to Make Button Jewellery book by Marrianne Mercer for lots of different ideas
