ShopRuche Lexington Indie Necklace CopycatPosted: June 14, 2011
I’ve been seeing some ideas for fabric button jewelries circling around Pinterest for a while, so when I saw this necklace at ShopRuche, I knew I could make it myself, and easily.
What You Need:
– Cover button kit (I got mine at Joann)
– Fabric and felt scraps
– A 17” necklace chain
– Jump rings
– Wire cutters, pliers, hot glue gun
(Sorry for the tiny print. Click on the image for the full size.)
And there you have it! I even did a little copycat photoshoot:
You can use any fabric you want, but I think it’s best to use an irregular print, so that the buttons still look uniform without being identical. As soon as I can get my hands on some lace, I’ll do the copycat version of this necklace too.
In other news…
I did spent about $4 on the cover button kit. Does that count into my shopping ban if I buy crafting/jewelry making supplies? It doesn’t, right? Besides, $4 sure beats ShopRuche’s $29.99 price tag, and I can make more necklaces from the same kit if I want.
