      Wow, only 2 loves, well now 3.
      This is one amazing collection, and I do believe you are in a class of your own here.
      Superb little works of art!!

      Ok, 4 loves now. I didn’t love it initially because I felt that the red line distracts from the beauty of the swirl design.
      I wondered if the red lines were applied after the creation of the balls to mark them for some reason.
      On close inspection of picture 2, I see one red line that is smeared at the very end; that makes me think the lines were applied to the finished balls.

      I doubt you would have time to dig out one particular button to examine a smear but perhaps there’s some knowledge that could be gained by doing so.

      Thanks for the comments ... They make a nice set and I imagine they would look cool on a Coat, etc.

      The red lines look like they were applied at making and several are very distinct/different. I have not seen these types of lines on the swirl types. You see white lines and goldstone colored lines on some of the solid color Waistcoats.
