How to use a button as a clasp

Hi guys!  I quick tutorial for you on how I used a lampwork button in a non-traditional way to make a clasp.  I'm lousy at making a seed beaded loop, so I came up with another way.

Click here to go to the article!  In the article, you can see how I used the beads from this Bead Soup in a necklace, but tore it apart and made something new that I wear all the time.  Never be afraid of the do-over!
