Mother of Pearl Buttons

Winnifred presented a very informative program on Mother of Pearl buttons at this months button study.
These are two types of shells that buttons would have been cut from.
This is a shell after the buttons have been cut from it.

Here we have carved and pierced Mother of Pearl buttons.

These  MOP buttons are embellished with metal.

This is a carved MOP belt buckle. Winnefred had a gorgeous collection of MOP buttons, and as always was a fountain of information. 91 years young and a delight to have in our group. Thank you ,Winnefred!

For those of you following our little bird family, the babies have left the nest!  Mr. Wonderful and I have empty nest syndrome! We miss the little bundles of feathers but we can have our coffee on the front porch now. Happy hunting! ~Robin~
