Bead or Button?

Hello! I'm sure you all guessed that this is, in fact, a button! Many beaders incorporate buttons into their beaded jewelry as either focal pieces or toggle clasps. I have used this button on a flat peyote stitch bracelet as a clasp and it was really gorgeous. If it found its way to the top of the wrist, it looked like an awesome focal bead. If it was under the wrist, it was a great surprise to see it as the person wearing it was talking with their hands. It made the flat peyote bracelet look very elegant.

The craft store button aisle is a great place to get new ideas for your next piece of jewelry!

Have a great evening!
