Tools and Materials Needed:
- Determine the length of the finished wrap. For instance if you want it to wrap three times, as my sample, than figure 7.5x3=22.5 and add some extra.
- You will need to double the amount you determine, so I am going to cut about 50" of beading wire.
- String enough 11/0 seed beads to create a loop around your button, I used about 32 beads, let these beads drop to the center of the beading wire.
- String a SD over both wires and bring it down to the 11/0's.
- Repeat this pattern, 11/0 on both wires and SD until you have threaded about 8 1/2"; string on the other button and continue the 11/0-SD pattern for another 12".
- When you have reached your end, ending with 11/0's string (1) 11/0 on to both wires together and run the wires up through a crimp bead, wire guardian back down the other side of the wire guardian.
- Slip the button shank onto the wire guardian and then run the wires back through the crimp bead.
- Make the necessary adjustments to tighten up the work and flat crimp the crimp bead using chain nose pliers.
- Trim the excess wire with your nipper tool to complete!
