Necklace #123. Vintage Japanese kimono cotton and one subtle teal blue one from kimono silk, on Japanese chirimen polyester bias tape. I'm hanging on to this one for a little while, since it goes with my great new top from Yasuko, with vintage Japanese kimono silk detail, and I want to wear it a couple of times.
Necklace #124. A patina-rich collection of vintage mother of pearl buttons on Japanese chirimen polyester bias tape. This one is a re-style: I'm much happier with it now than I was when I tried a central button of a different material (stone). The m.o.p.s wanted to be together!
Necklace #125. Contemporary plastic buttons with the band of dots (from the wonderful Maya store in San Diego's South Park neighborhood) with vintage plastic and rhinestone buttons on Japanese chirimen polyester bias tape. This one has been fun to test-drive.
