In this video I demonstrate the method for braiding with buttons. I use 1cm mother of pearl star buttons, but it is possible to use a wide range of shapes and styles of button. If the buttons are a few millimeters larger or smaller the spacing of the buttons will be reduced or increased, but the effect will still be very attractive. You can have a lot of fun exploring different buttons.
