This handmade button necklace of antique china buttons is in varied shades of white, cream ivory and bone tan. It is simple, yet elegant and a little unusual. The buttons I collected here have been previously used and reclaimed, collected by me and are in several designs. All have a patina of their past life from wear and wash. Some may have tiny chips, scrapes, age discoloration and other wonderful signs of their travels.
This is a nice medium and very wearable length for everyday. Many of my necklaces can be combined for a dramatic fashion statement.
Measured along the entire loop.
38 inches long (96.52 cm )
Buttons average 1/2 inch across ( 1.27 cm )
Smallest button - largest button - 3/8 inches and 3/4 inches (.95 cm and 1.91 cm)
All my button necklaces come carefully wrapped and tucked into a handmade fabric pouch fastened with a vintage or antique button.

MORE ABOUT MY BUTTON JEWELRY ART
In the early 1980s while living in Chicago, I came across three huge tins full of vintage and antique
buttons, many that dated to the civil war era. I was so taken with them, their tiny beauty and began fashioning
necklaces and jewelry out of them for myself, family and friends. Now you too can own a Stelma Designs original
antique or vintage button necklace that is beautiful, valuable and a piece of history!
Thank you from Stelma Designs!
