Santa Fe Talisman

bead and button jewelry by Christen Brown

The base of the necklace is a vintage velvet ribbon, the pattern "Vintage Bling Bling". The buttons and charms and other components that are encrusted around the base took a lifetime to collect.

The vintage carved tahiti shell buttons were a gift from a friend; the abalone buttons I made myself in high school; the turquoise buttons were bought at the palace of the governor's in Santa Fe.

Other treasures include shell discs, fresh water pearls, jade buttons, and vintage and new glass beads.

The first bracelet "Anemone" is loaded with dangles of all kinds. These are stitched to a base of large seed beads with a vintage button for the closure.

The second bracelet is from the "Button Brigade" pattern with carved floral pua shell buttons.
