Step 1: Preparing the Buttons
Cut off the tip of the point part very carefully with your wire cutters
Flip the button over and punch a hole with your nail and hammer on the opposite side of where the point part was. They're a little slippery, so be careful and find a way to hold it in one place.
Depending on how long you want your necklace, you're going to prepare about 20 buttons. Repeat until you have your desired amount.
