This fabulous pendant is made of collaged vintage Bakelite buttons. The base is a blue rectangle Bakelite button with two oval Bakelite buttons, one green and one blue, stacked on top. I love it because the shapes are so simple yet so dramatic because of their combination. The pendant is about 2 1/8 inches long and 1 inch high. The bail is silver-toned. An 18-inch magnetic clasp silver-toned neckwire is included. Because the buttons are vintage, there may be slight signs of age and slight wear that add to the cache of the piece. My button collages show as little of the buttonholes on the front as possible so as to highlight the charm of the buttons versus their onetime functionality (plus I think this sets my pieces apart from many other types of button collages).
