When designing the necklace simply slip the beading wire through the hole on the button and make sue it is centered. Next, add the beads to each side of the beading wire as would be done with any necklace. When all the beads have been added it is now time to add the clasp. This can be done by attaching the beading wire to the clasp. There are several methods for securing the clasp to the beading wire, so look for books at the crafting store and the local library to find great step by step instructions. Remember to have fun creating unique necklaces with buttons!
