Making Jewelry: Safety Pins & Buttons bracelet

This is unconventional but super hip, especially because it's repurposed and green.

To make this:

Gather safety pins, buttons, o-rings or beading wire, vintage charms, and pliers.

I tested out a length like this first, to be sure I could slip it over my wrist.
Mine was about 9 inches long, I wanted it to slip around a little bit.

O - rings are easiest.
I tried wire wrapping the buttons as well, but it was much more time consuming and finger bending.


Make a mambo-line with your pins. This is the best way (for me) to attch all my buttons.

Attach the other buttons by sliding them onto each pin, then close it up. Careful!

I wanted more shankless metal buttons on this piece, but I didn't have anymore.

I think with jeans and a tee this could ROCK.

different is cool.
