A short stack of old buttons - mixed soft colours, pearly, textured, with words and without, mother-of-pearl... threaded onto sterling silver wire which has then been wrapped organically around itself making about a 1.5cm (.75") "post". This has been tumbled for strength and shine, and then deeply patinated to a gorgeous bluish hue before being hung ona three strand string.

A pale green - called Saltbush - hand-dyed colourstreams silk ribbon, a natural coloured hemp string, and a tan coloured waxed lined thread have been threaded through the top of the wire wrapped post and tied with a single knot at the back. This is long enough to slip right over your head, and can easily be retied at any length. At first this will hang with the strings quite loosely, but it will wear into place and settle... I have a pendant on a similar string and silk combination.

I pack my jewellery into a suitable container - a small box, a little pouch - depending on the item. If you prefer that I don't use the box, to cut down on shipping costs, please let me know. If I can safely package an item without the box, and have it come in under 2cm I'm happy to do that. But you have to say so in comments to seller.
Please also let me know if you'd prefer I not use recycled/re-used packing materials.
