The innovative setting we used for this design enabled us to use two large buttons in one reversible necklace.
One side features a modern, hand-pressed Czech glass button made by one of the few remaining Czech button artisans using antique molds and centuries-old manufacturing processes. We chose the color and the molds ourselves when we visited the Czech Republic.
On the flip is a one-of-a-kind, antique, celluloid wafer button. Celluloid was discovered in the 1860s during a failed attempt to manufacture ivory-free billiard balls.
Wafer buttons are distinguished by layers of green, tan, brown, and black celluloid, each with a different carved pattern.
Please note that every wafer button is a one and only so yours will not look exactly like the one in the photo.
