The ingredients list is also fairly basic. Along with your button (mine is from Bo Hulley Beads), you'll need seed beads (around 4mm), approximately 40cm of 4ply Irish waxed linen, and a wire figure-of-eight link. I've used the eye link from a Vintaj hook and eye clasp (like this one) but you could always form your own from some wire. To start, thread enough beads to loop around your button onto the cord and move them to the centre of the cord. Next, thread each of the ends of your cord through the two holes of your figure-of-eight link. Then, continue threading beads onto both ends of the cord until you have enough length to fit round the wrist.
Next, thread your two cord ends in opposing directions through the holes in your button. Then take both threads together and tie an overhand knot that sits snugly against the back of the button.
Finally, make beaded tassels on the ends of your cord. I've knotted at the top and bottom of my tassel beads so they stay neatly in place and are kept out of the way of the loop. Then you just need to trim your ends about 5mm below the beads.
And that's it!
