Tutorial Mother of Pearl Button Necklace for Fall Acorn!

Tutorial Mother of Pearl Button Necklace for Fall Acorn!


I thought his vintage mother of pearl acorn button would be so sweet as a necklace so I put this together. You will need  

1. a larger button for the base. I used this one here:
                                  A Large 1.75 Inch Smokey Colored Mother of Pearl Button 
                   

            2. a medium  of a different color for the center. I used this                     one here:            A Vintage Carved Mother of Pearl MOP Cosmo or Tropical Flower Button 

        3. the darling mother of pearl acorn button found here:

I purchased these necklace findings at Michael's Craft Store, you could us a glue on bale like the one shown in first photo too. They only had silver ones when I went and I didn't want to wait to order one online. These others turned out perfectly as you will see, adding a bit of bling to the back of the necklace
 Using E6000 Glue glue your three buttons together


I then glued one of the filigree findings to the back putting the flat side down, leaving a little bling as decoration for the backside of your necklace. I made a tiny dot with a black marker to line up the top of the acorn so the ring would be centered correctly on the buttons. 

I added a small jump ring and you can put the pendant on a ball chain necklace as shown here or add to an organza ribbon necklace, I might pick up one of these myself.
