This is a very pretty repurposed vintage button pendant necklace made with a "root beer" Bakelite button. It is referred to as "root beer" because of the transparency and the swirling red brown colors. This style of Bakelite has also been referred to as "faux tortoise." Bakelite was discovered by a Belgian chemist and made in the 1920s through the 1940s. It is quite collectible nowadays. A rubbery plastic stamping holds up a metal ball button. This is a perfect gift for Mother's Day!

This is a one-of-a-kind item, I cannot make this again! I spend many hours digging through button boxes at flea markets and estate sales looking for that special button that will make a gorgeous and eye-catching pendant. Buttons are not made the same way nowadays so my goal is to get these special and rare buttons out of the closet and give them a prestigious new life!

Pendant is attached to a matching camel tan organza ribbon and cord necklace by a brass colored bail. Necklace measures 17 inches in length (43cm) and has a silver lobster clasp with small extendable chain, which can add up to 2 extra inches. Button pendant measures 2 inches (5.08cm) in diameter and about 1/2 inches thick (1.27cm). It may be a large button, but it is not heavy to wear. All necklaces come in a nice handmade gift box - easy for giving but also for keeping.
