Chanel Inspired Charm Bracelet......made from ?????

I'm just going to say it, I'm NOT a fan of button bracelets.  I like the idea, but they always look like buttons to me.  Well, I finally came up with a solution and I'm pretty happy with it.  Here's the result and I hope you like it as much as I do!

Wire cutters
Drill through the edge of each button 
Glue the pearls to one side and let them dry for 15 minutes  
Glue pearls to the other side and let them dry for another 15 minutes (You might have to stand them on a crumpled towel to keep the pearls from slipping when they other side dries
