The Vintage Bling Bling ensemble is comprised of many, many buttons all in soft peach, green, gold and taupe colors. The buttons include Bakelite, celluloid, glass and porcelain. Many of these buttons came my way by a gift from a friend, who's boyfriend's grandmother had passed on. She knew that I would find the right project for these treasures.
The neckpiece started with the center piece which was a pin from my grandmother's jewelry collection. The earrings are from my husband's grandmother's jewelry box, given to me several years ago.
The base of the necklace is a vintage velvet ribbon, with silk cord and a celluloid button for the closure. The vintage leaf shaped appliques were found at an antique store. Vintage and new flower, leaf and butterfly shaped glass bead dangles are added between the clusters of buttons.
