Description

Adjustable necklace with 30 vintage, (abalone) shell buttons on a burnt orange (yellow orange) colored silk cord. 6 of the buttons have intricate carvings. One of the buttons serves as the adjusting mechanism.

The necklace is approximately 30 inches long. To put the necklace on, it is slipped over the head. It does not have a clasp.

The buttons have a lovely sheen and are approximately 1/2" to 1&3/16" in diameter.

All of my items are hand-made in Indiana with love and care. My 84-year-old mother & I have hand picked and cleaned these old buttons and strung them on strong, shiny 100% silk cord.

As I am not a button expert, I can make no guarantees as to the type of shell or if the buttons are antique, vintage, or even modern. Most of the buttons I use are old and are made of some sort of natural shell. While the fronts of the buttons are shiny, colored, carved, and/or smooth, the backs of the buttons often show the rough, rustic, exterior part of the natural shell.

These vintage/antique buttons have patina and show wear and tear. They have imperfections that are an integral part of their charm. Please take a close look at the photos as I work very hard to show all aspects of the jewelry.

The bust I use to take the photos is quite petite and may give the impression that the buttons are bigger than they really are. Please refer to the dimensions in the description and the photos with the ruler to get the best idea of the true size.

The buttons make a lovely sound when they brush up against each other! They feel cool and heavy, soft and sleek.

This tiny pearl bracelet is SO sweet and pretty! Opening it was an absolute thrill. It might be my new favorite item for my wrist. It looks beautiful stacked with many bracelets or all by itself. The pink silk thread is perfect and the buttons are lovely and very clean and well chosen. Thank you!
