Green Mother of Pearl Jewelry

Green mother of pearl jewelry made from vintage pearl buttons from Midwestern USA.

These vintage shell buttons from Muscatine, Iowa, were soaked for days to get this vivid beautiful color.

Muscatine, Iowa, former Pearl Button Capital of the World, bustled with button making activity during the early part of the 20th century. Almost every family in town was involved in some way or another, from getting shells to cutting the blanks, to refining the design, dying, sewing on cards, or selling.

Green buttons together with freshwater pearls or white buttons come together here for fun and exciting form of historical jewelry.

They're not only collector's items, but practical pieces to enjoy wearing.
