DIY: Give those Old Beads some Oomph!

I found this strand of red beads at the Goodwill and after finding the coat buttons with chains at the estate sale last weekend I decided to see what they would look like together.

I really like how it turned out, kind of reminds me of something that would be on a marching band or military jacket.

This was super easy, I just used my jewelry pliers and opened up the link and clasped it between two big red beads and then attached another link to the button and chain at desired length apart and clasped it between two more red beads. For the second one, clasp the button between the first two buttons and then at about the same distance apart as the first set clasp the second button. I love it! All this for around .50 cents.
