One set of 12 wooden buttons with four holes; made of Juniper wood (Juniperus virginiana). The Lakota Nation calls it Chansha, "redwood" and because of being a slow-growing tree, it is very light but durable.

Such a beauty was cunningly concealed by the natural grain of the wood. Cloudy shades of the rings with creamy brown and a bit yellowish colors.

Each button has an irregular shape and measures approximately 2" (50 mm) in diameter; and around 3/16” (5-6 mm) thick.

You will receive the items pictured here! In the last photo I put a coin among the buttons to make it easier to imagine the size. The diameter of the coin is 1 inch (26 mm).

-----------------------------------------------------
The branch was collected and re-purposed in eco-friendly way. When people from the local energy company were trimming the trees near power lines, my husband saved some of the branches and stacked to air-dry under cover for more than a year before cutting them.

The buttons were hand sanded several times to make it smooth to touch; sealed with natural linseed oil to preserve the beautiful wood grain; and then buffed with organic beeswax polish to protect the wood.

No tree was ever taken for the sole purpose of these buttons. Most of the work was done during our travels in our motorhome and each button was dealt carefully by hands.

Please, avoid putting these buttons into washing machine and dryer or soaking them in water! Gentle handwashing should be fine if you don't let the buttons soak and pat them dry immediately after washing.
