Day 39 : Pentadecagram

One Button a Day 2020 by Gina Barrett Day 39: Pentadecagram

Day 39 : Pentadecagram

Something a little simpler perhaps today - although getting everything even was actually harder than it looks. I've covered a cover button with silk fabric and then worked the spokes in silver thread. The sad thing is that eventually the silver will tarnish. Many many years ago (pre internet) I read that before the industrial revolution (and the vast amounts of coal pollution that came with it), silver tarnished much less quickly. Which is why it was used in so many garments, it was not expected to go black too soon. 

Size : 30mm / 1 3⁄16" / 48L

  1. Lovely. Reminds me of old maps of the universe. Nice to see all three versions of the button measurements.
