Hand painted vintage mother of pearl buttons.
I have a weakness for buttons!
Added to all of my work, without exception, there is always at least one vintage mother of pearl button. Mostly there are more than that.
I am always on the look out for beautiful carved ones, ones that are different and rare.
I have recently found a lady who hand paints on vintage buttons and I have purchased some from her for up and coming project. Mine have tiny wee roses on them and I will attach them to one of my new designs for next year.
I have found a picture of some painted mother of pearl buttons for you to look at to see what I mean.
They are beautiful aren't they...... Mine are on there way.
I am going to do a design around them ( basically with them in mind )
I hope you all have a wonderful day and Happy Stitching!
