Description
 
This buttons are new old stock vintage from a group I have. The colors vary from smokey gray, to almost completely black. It's a little hard to capture the colors in photos. The button has a carved design around the edge and measures about one inch with 2 sew through holes. Very Pretty!

These buttons were carved from blacklip shells. Blacklip Mother of Pearl is one of the most exclusive pearls in the world. It comes from small shells found in French Polynesia around Tahiti and its Archipelagos. Just under the exterior bark of the shell is where the real beauty of the Blacklip shell lies. Blacklip has a black/gray color around the lip of the shell. Some pieces of Blacklip will have every color of the rainbow in its iridescent black background, some are more solid black. Pieces vary in coloring and design just like the nature of the shells. Most of the shells are black only along the edge, making larger pieces more valuable.

You are purchasing one button, if you have a shade you prefer please note & I will do my best for you, although I cannot guarantee what I will still have in stock. Great addition to any button collection, wonderful for sewing or crafting or jewelry making with buttons.
