The New Cordelia Necklace

The innovative setting we used in this design enabled us to use two large buttons in one pendant necklace resulting in a reversible design that’s a first for us. 

One side features a hand-pressed Czech glass button made today using century-old processes. We chose the mold and the colors for this button during a visit to the Czech Republic and adore how it turned out. You can read about this incredible art and our Bohemian adventure on A Passion for Czech Glass on our Buttonology Blog.

On the flip side of this necklace 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.

In this piece:

  • Czech glass button hand-pressed today in antique iron molds using a centuries-old process
  • One of a kind celluloid wafer button circa 1920
  • Quatrefoil brass stamping, made in vintage dies in the USA
  • Brass-plated pewter setting made in the US 
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 32”
