Vintage Button Strands

When the weather turns so nasty-hot that I'm stuck indoors, panting in front of the mini AC unit, nothing makes me happier than a quickie project I can do while watching movies with my feet up on the coffee table. These are so dang fun.... two-yard-long loops of crocheted C-Lon cord studded with some of my favorite vintage buttons. They can be worn long, doubled, tripled, or knotted.

 This one is all white... mostly vintage shell buttons. I fell in LOVE with it!

Love to wear these wrapped around my wrist as bracelets.
Sometimes I do just beads.... on a colored C-Lon. A bit shorter and more elegant...
