How to choose a button to bezel

It can be a challenge to incorporate buttons into your beadwork or jewelry because they are often large and heavy and they can be hard to attach securely. One solution to this problem is to encase the button in a beaded bezel, which you can learn to do in the “Venetian window necklace” project featured in the August 2016 issue of Bead&Button. Not only does bezeling provide a great way to incorporate your button into a piece, it also adds an extra level of beauty. But some buttons are better for bezeling than others and Bead&Button Associate Editor Cassie Donlen made this quick video full of tips on how to choose the perfect button to bezel. With so many amazing artisan and Czech glass buttons to choose from, these two tutorials compile the perfect combination to learn all about bezeling buttons.
