Nautilus Flower Necklace
This pendant necklace shows off two lovely pearl buttons. The first, a small wooden button, is covered in paper-mâché and inlaid with an iridescent nautilus shell. This sweet button is set on another large carved ocean pearl button which is bedecked with cut steel.
The inlaid button reminds us of a Charles Dickens quote about an ocean pearl button he saw in a Birmingham factory which he described as “gleaming with green and lilac colors when moved in the light.”
This necklace features a sliding clasp that enables you to adjust its length to suit any neckline. You can wear it as a choker, as a long pendant, or anywhere in between.

- Small wooden button covered in paper-mâché and inlaid with iridescent nautilus shell, circa 1850-1870
- Large engraved dark ocean pearl button set with cut steel, circa 1890-1910
