Ribbon and Button Jewellery week - Bracelets

I think I could be the queen of bracelets.
I never used to wear them, but after my op on my thumb last August I was left with (what I thought) was a nasty scar on my wrist.
Bracelets came to my rescue, I layer them up, two or three at a time.
I love the way they move up and down my wrist - they make me smile!
So here we go, bracelet time with buttons and ribbons.
This is Seam Binding! Honest.
I wanted a vintage natural look for this bracelet,
so after going up and down our ribbon aisles for a while, dismissing all the bright ribbons.
I ended up in the seam binding section, ummmm nice colours but a little wide?
Not at all, it threaded through a normal needle, so it went through the buttons like a dream!
Find this cashmere seam binding here, and the vintage buttons here
Go on have a play with ribbons and buttons, make a bracelet and have fun jangling all day! 
Here is a little more inspiration
I made this for a Hello Wednesday project here
Laura also used seam binding to make this
