You can use buttons, beads, or charms to vary the look!
This is all you need to make this project.
Make a sketch to figure out the placement and measurements.

Connect with a slipstitch at the marker, and make a few more slipstitches into the next few chains for a secure connection. Finish off.

4. Add the closure button. Thread the beginning long tail onto a needle and thread it through the button several times, then take a stitch through the first chain stitch, and finish off.

Sewing on the final button for the closure is the last step.
Weave in the tails at both ends of the necklace.

Voila! You can make these as chokers (like mine) or longer lengths. I've also used beads, charms, seashells, and bits of coral—essentially anything with a hole in it! Try it out and see if you can stop making these once you start!

Here's the finished necklace.
