Necklace #120, vintage plastic buttons, mostly celluloid, on Japanese chirimen polyester bias tape.
Pawing around in the vintage plastic buttons led to this one:
Necklace #121. Vintage plastic buttons (the one with the metal center is likely Bakelite) on cotton/linen bias tape.
And then, enjoying darks, lights and patinas in the vintage button world, this one:
Necklace #122. Vintage plastic (one is horn) buttons, two with mother of pearl inlays, on Japanese woven cotton bias tape. The little rings at the edges are stone. I love that wacky button with the circle and triangle cut-outs. The center button has, I think, achieved the gold-brown areas as it aged.
