Make a Button into a Clasp

By on Thursday, June 15, 2017 2 Comments

Most of us probably collect buttons. If you have some pretty ones, check out this awesome  tip from Lisa Yang who shows how she turned a button into a clasp with some simple wiring.  I agree with her that the button really hides the clasp and becomes a focal in itself.



This is a large button measuring 1.5 inch across so the wire gauge looks deceptively thin. But the designer used 16 G wire. 18 G and 16 G are good strong wire gauges to use for clasps.

  1. What a great idea! Especially since the button doesn't need to be a shank button!

    Now I wish I hadn't sold off all my best buttons.
