Antique Button Pendant Necklace
Yesterday I shared with you my mother of pearl buttons and today I will share with you a necklace I made from a different type of button. I purchased two of these buttons at the antique shop were I sell my antiques and work. I got these from a dealer friend and knew they would make something special. I do not make a lot with black so this piece gave me the chance to use some old chunky faceted black jet beads. I could not decide whether to make this a short or long necklace, so I left it as is at 30 1/2" long and will let the buyer decide (I know I just could not commit). I think the chain works well with the brass on the button frame and the hand forged hook and eye helps give it a modern look.
