Are You a One-of-a-Kind Kind of Girl?

Antique Mother of Pearl Button

Often I come across remarkable antique buttons, as you can see from the selections with the Talisman Studios shop, but until I began doing beadwork, I wasn’t sure how I could use these miniature pieces of art. Luckily, the beading inspired me to incorporate the tiny delicacies into jewelry.  Here is my most recent – a princess length necklace.

The piece features a Mother of Pearl antique button with a brass escutcheon. Made in the late 1800′s, the pearl background serves to highlight the romantic details of flower and wreath border.  Bronze colored faceted English Cut glass beads, along with seed beads in iridescent hues compliment the colors within the shell button.

This is a one of a kind piece available for sale in the Talisman Studios shop.
