Statement Necklace, Vintage Buttons and Buckles, Shell and Vintage Plastic OOAK

This button and buckle statement necklace is just that; a loop of vintage and antique mother of pearl shell buttons threaded with old vintage plastic buckles on red cord and finished with a bright yellow brass clasp for a one of a kind, unique piece. The shells are ivory yet some are very golden and some have dark gun metal tones. All the shells shine beautifully with their iridescent light and contrast with the more matte, dull finish of the old plastic buckles.

If you like to have a special something around your neck that no one else has, this is it.

Measured along the entire longest loop.

30 inches long (76.20 cm )
Largest buckle is 2 inches (5.08 cm)
Shell buttons vary from 5/16 inch to 1 inch in width. (.79 - 2.54 cm )

Your necklace will come to you carefully wrapped and packaged in a handmade fabric pouch fastened with a vintage or antique button.

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 can own a StelmaDesigns original antique or vintage button necklace that is beautiful, valuable and a piece of history!

Thank you from StelmaDesigns!

Even more beautiful in person. Seller was wonderful as we worked together designing my necklace. I was also very pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw the way the necklace was packaged. Thanks again for your attention to detail. I love my necklace!

I love it thank you. So well made. It has attracted much attention. I hope I can keep it in one piece - I've broken one button already - I'll have to be more careful. I love it too much. Many thanks, nLynne

Stunning necklace. I asked for business cards to hand out knowing there would be admirers and sure enough the first day wearing it I received a compliment. Beautifully made. This is fine jewelry that happens to be made from buttons.
