This necklace has a bit of a story behind it. It consist of an antique mother of pearl button with vintage salmon pink thread. The thread belonged to my grandmother who was a seamstress. I inherited her fabric and thread stash. The thread is 40-60s years old! I found out the hard way that you cannot machine sew with this thread- it is brittle and breaks in the machine. I couldn't bear to just throw it away so I bought a thread hanger and decorated my studio with it. While pondering over a button necklace that I was making, I spied her thread. Voila- a new design was born!

Button measures 3/4"
Chain measures 18" . Stainless Steel.
