Swarovski Buttons in Jewelry or on Clothing?

I was just sitting here looking through a bead container that had a few swarovski buttons in it.

These buttons have a hole through the back and I've had fun using them in necklaces and memory wire bracelets.

However, I just happened to be thinking that I could actually sew a couple of these buttons onto a blouse!

Yes, that might seem like a silly idea, a button, on a blouse, but it had never crossed my mind before. All I could think of was using anything Swarovski in jewelry!

I'd love to hear your thoughts or experiences using Swarovski buttons on clothes!!

Why didn't I think of this before? :)

I've never used the Swarovski buttons on clothing, but I would take laundering into consideration. I don't know what Swarovski says about washing a pice of clothing with one of their buttons on it, but I would check it out. It would be a shame to ruin something so lovely!

You're funny Lisa, though I probably wouldn't have thought to put them on clothes either! LOL Bet they would look gorgeous as the top button on a lovely blouse. So much bling! I agree with Maryanne that you would have to be careful how you washed it. Wouldn't want those tumbling around in the dryer! :-)

Thanks guys, I didn't think about that darn laundry thing either! I wash a lot by hand, so maybe that would be the solution... :)

I love Swarovski buttons on clothes it makes the clothes look very chic. Actually I had a beautiful white shirt with Swarovski crystals. I gave it away because it got too small for me. I also own a beautiful jacket with Swarovski crystals.

You could hand wash the top with woolite, and nothing will happen to the buttons. Or you could dry clean it. But it will cost you more to dry clean. Especially when they look at the buttons. The cleaners usually cover the buttons before they dry clean.
