Increasing and decreasing brick stitch give this bracelet its wavy edge. I added hex cut seed beads to the design for added texture.
Follow the pattern of warm, amber tones and delightful greens to the feminine floral end of this bracelet This idea is a great way to use your favorite button and put together a fun palette of seed beads.
Repeat this pattern of alternating from increase to decrease brick stitch with each new row until you have approximately 66 rows. Our bracelet measured approximately 5.5 inches at this point, so you may adjust the number of rows to fit your wrist. You may choose to use any pattern of seed bead colors, but here is the order in which we made rows four through seven:

On the last row, thread the needle back through several rows in a diagonal fashion, crossing back and forth in a Z pattern to secure the hold. Be sure to finish with the needle going back up through the second bead in the last row. Do not cut the thread; it will be used to create the loop to hold the button, so set aside for now.
With a new thread, sew the Czech glass copper and gold daisy design round button to two central beads in the fifth row. Cut the thread.
Return to the thread from step six. Add approximately 30 beads in a random fashion for the loop. You may adjust the number of beads used to fit your wrist and around the button.
Then, bring the needle back down through the second bead on the opposite end of the row (the second to last bead).
Weave through all of the beads on the last row for a secure hold. Repeat two to three times for extra strength.
