First the buttons are linked together with thread stitches – to form a basic bracelet. Then the decorative stitching is added.
Here the basic bracelet is made with teal cotton thread and highlighted with red French knots and cream cotton leaves. The buttons had printing on the front, so I turned them upside down to show the plain brown side only.
This one was made with the same brown buttons, but this time I let the print show – giving it a typographical feel. The basic bracelet was made with slightly thicker Vinnis Nikkim (South African hand dyed cotton thread) in apple green and highlighted with cream crochet cotton French knots.
For this one I used black buttons and various crochet cottons from my collection.
