Button, Button Who's Got the Button ???

A crocheted wire button lace necklace with vintage buttons from Meg
at VintageScraps on Etsy ...
She had a lovely collection of buttons in pale yellows, pale lavenders,
pale greys, & mother of pearl ...
There is a good mix of vintage plastic & mother of pearl buttons in various sizes ...

Some of them still had threads attached to them & I left the threads
as I added it to the button lace ... I like the idea of the threads from the
past following the buttons through time to metamorphosize into a new art form ...

I refer to this type of necklace as a puzzle necklace.
Placing the buttons into a pleasing arrangement is
------------------------------ similar to putting a puzzle together ...

The clasp is a type of vintage-style ribbon from Europa Trims.
The chocolate ribbon is edged with black & perfectly matches
the wire that was used to crochet the buttons together...

There is a movable jump ring that the ribbons are attached to.
This allows the ribbon & the necklace to move freely while it is being worn ...
The ribbons are also lightly wired ...
I think it gives a lovely vintage feel to the whole piece,
but if this does not appeal to you the wire can be removed ...

The last picture shows how flexible this necklace is ...
Sizing : the length if this necklace is 17 3/4 inches at its' shortest
---------------( it is adjustable and can be lowered 2-3 inches more,
but no longer due to the curvature around the back ...

The bottom of the necklace in front is 4 inches long at the center
& 3 inches wide.
Then graduates as it moves towards the back to a single row of buttons ...

This necklace will come in its' own custom box.
So it travels properly & you will have a great storage container for it ...
The box is hand-decorated & made-to-match & comes
with all the 'bells & whistles' ...
It is highly giftable for yourself or a friend !!!
---------------------------( You will not be disappointed ;-)

If you like this necklace, but would like me to use your own special buttons;
convo me & we can set up a special listing ...
