Here's another quick necklace you can make with just a few leftover components, a bit of wire, cord, and a button.

I used waxed cotton cord measured to the desired drape length with 2 inches added to allow for turnover and construction of the loops at each end.

On one end I made a loop large enough to slip over the selected button. On the other end I looped the waxed cotton through the button shank. I wrapped 22-gauge wire at the base of each loop and trimmed the excess cord and wire.
