Necklace #184. Vintage celluloid and metal buttons on a black satin bias tape.
I love a rythmic asymmetry and I always drift to black and red.
Necklace #185. Bakelite buttons with mother-of-pearl insets, on Japanese chirimen bias tape.
Hard not to keep rubbing these pleasingly smooth buttons or watching the mother-of-pearl catch the light.
Necklace #186. Bakelite buttons on satin bias tape.
These 1920s butterflies are one of the great treasures in the gift box, and the little Bakelite buttons give them a little dimension.
So yes, off and running, with more designs lined up on the work table.
