I took a piece of inch wide elastic that I salvaged out of some of my son's old sweatpants, and sewed it into a circle. I then sewed buttons all over the elastic. I used vintage buttons in shades of brown and cream with a few metal buttons tossed in for good measure. It is really attractive and I always get tons of compliments when I wear it.

I have made 3 bracelets using medium link chain and then attaching shank type metal buttons to it with split jump rings, then adding a toggle clasp when finished. It's takes awhile to make them, and it also uses a lot of buttons, but they are really cute bracelets and nice gifts for someone. My bracelets are posted here at T/F if you would like to see them. :-)

Thanks,

CDC

I want to make button bracelets for my 35 year-old daughter. If I use elastic to make the bracelet, how can I cover the back (next to the skin) with fabric so the stitching doesn't rub on her skin? If I just cover it with fabric, how do I join it to the front without it showing? Thanks for your help.

Grosgrain ribbon and use heat bond seam tape. Just iron the two pieces together with the heat bond tape sandwiched in the middle.
