Looking through the buttons on this site, I saw many hand painted buttons. Well, this is how the button starts out. These are milky-white river shells. They are super shiny and smooth and are self shanking. These can be dyed or, as you've seen, hand painted into a work of art!

    Yeah?? I didn't always think so. It is a pretty cool story, though. Thanks for the comment
