How to Attach Small Vintage Buttons to This Bracelet?  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

I finished this bracelet which has been constructed simply – wire-wrapped beads attached to chain.

I would love to add these vintage flower buttons (please see attached photo) but I have not been able to find a way that would be secure and would look presentable.

Do you have any suggestions?

I would guess that the buttons were originally stitched (?) into place.

I tried to sort of “stitch” a button to one of the rings on the original chain using 28 gauge brass wire as thread but again I don’t think that it looks very finished and I am worried about durability.

Would it be odd for me to stitch them on with beading thread? If so, what do you think would be the best way to attach each button?

Thank you.
