I found these stunning vintage Japanese buttons not too long ago. I'm not sure how old these are, but the sculptural and the detailing are just astonishing, and well-made too.
Usually, I waited a while before I actually start to make something out of them. But, I knew right off the bat what I want to make out of these buttons. Jewelry, of course!
You wouldn't even recognize these are buttons if I didn't mention it. It'll be our little secret ;)

Length: 2 in. (5 cm) include french hooks
A pair of vintage Japanese buttons with seashell detailing and vermilion enameling were bright enough that I toned it down with faceted rounds of soft peach aventurine, freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals.

Reiko - IDR 220.000 / USD 28.50
Length: a little bit over 2 1/2 in. (6.5 cm) include french hooks.
A pair of vintage Japanese button with seashell detailing with nude-peach enameling were rather bland, so I paired them with round faceted purple aventurine, Swarovski crystals and a pair of faceted smoky quartz teardrops.
Last pair!

Atsumi - IDR 250.000 / USD 32.50
Length: approximately 2 1/2 in. (6.4 cm) include french hooks
The vintage Japanese buttons of almost sculptural flower-shape with peridot green rhinestones in them look amazing with green jade rounds and diamond-shape of lemon jade. Swarovski crystals added balance on the bright colors.
Last pair!

Minako - SOLD OUT
Length: approximately 1 7/8 in. (4.8 cm) include french hooks
These almost-sculptural flower-shaped vintage Japanese buttons with jonquil yellow rhinestones in them were perfect together with clusters of tiny freshwater pearls and a pair of milky white faceted quartz briolettes.

Midori - IDR 295.000 / USD 38
Length: 2 1/4 in. (5.7 cm) include french hooks
You know I gotta have green. These amazing vintage Japanese flower-shaped buttons with different green colors of enamels in them and rhinestones in the middle were already an eye-stopping. But I can't just stop there, can I? Had to add more juicy lime green of briolette quartz, lemon green of olive jade and some Swarovski crystals.

Keep in mind that these stones; color, shape and size might slightly vary from one another because of their natural state.
