These two chaps I saw in the Museum of Natural History in New York are incredibly old (I can't remember exactly HOW old, but VERY OLD) and all that's necessary are a couple of marks to distinguish the two as representing human figures and even enough to give them personalities I think. (A small and surly character with a big, joyful friend, ancient predecessors of Ren and Stimpy??)

They quote Stephane Berthelemy, director of the House of Deruses, and button makers for Chanel as seeing "the button on a garment as a star in the night sky".
Paula Cocozza also writes,"a good button brings intrigue. It's slower than a zip, and that slowness makes us deliberate as we dress."
This makes me think of decadent ball gowns and ladies having their rows of buttons done all the way up by the delicate hands of their maids.
For my collars I take details of historical garments turning them into jewellery where each button is a jewel. This new collar is a private commission in ecru with grosgrain ribbon.
