Gilded Gemstone and chain tassel necklace DIY-materials

* La Mode large bejeweled button from JoAnne’s {$2.75} which I picked up while getting materials for my D&G bejeweled shoes {I was going to use the two small buttons with it but it just didn’t work out right. I may make earrings out of them.
* 254 cm gold chain.
* 42″ (1.06m) gold chain
* Large clasps or ribbon or leather {I used leather lacing}
* Large gold oval jump ring
* Beading pliers

* Open the chain links on either end of your larger chain and attach to the button hook & to each other to stabilize the button {so it doesn’t fall forward}.

    Fun! This makes me think of my mom’s costume jewelry from the 80s and early 90s. She loved big colorful pieces and bolero ties, and I’m totally getting that vibe from this piece.
