Project and Sample by Tracy Proctor, TierraCast

When we saw this Tahoe-esque project from TierraCast we fell in love. How cute is this? The Monstera Leaf buttons are perfect, but we’d really love to see what you can come up with, too! A trio of Czech Glass Buttons would be divine, or imagine with Green Girl buttons...c’est magnifique!

Tips: When determining bracelet length be sure to take cord ends and clasp assembly into account! When securing Crimp Ends, try crimping from loop side.


  1. Cut three 8" pieces of cord.
  2. String one button onto one piece of cord, positioning it near the center. Repeat with remaining cords and buttons.
  3. Line cords up next to each other. Position buttons at center as desired, then string one 3-hole bar onto one side of bracelet. Move bar next to buttons. Repeat on other side.
  4. String one Evolve bead onto one side of bracelet and position next to bar. Repeat on other side.
  5. Arrange buttons, bars and beads as desired, then use flat nose or parallel pliers to lightly crimp the barrel beads into position. 
  6. Determine desired length of bracelet* and trim cords at both sides as needed.
  7. Place one Crimp End onto cords at one side of bracelet. (Optional: place a small amount of glue into crimp end before placing.) Use flat nose or parallel pliers to crimp in place. Test carefully to make sure it is secure. Repeat crimping as necessary. Repeat on other side.
  8. Use jump rings to attach Clasp to Crimp Ends.
