Copper & BYPU Intermediate Pin Back Button Necklace

Regular price $35.00

  Copper & BYPU Intermediate Pin Back Button Necklace.  I made this necklace with an old pin-back button (probably from 1920s) that I found at an antique shop in Columbia, Missouri.  I had no idea what BYPU stood for, but liked the colors & graphics.  I googled BYPU & it appears to be an acronym for either Baptist Young People's Union or Blog Your Passion University!  I prong set the button on copper that I patinated with liver of sulfur.  For the chain, I used moss agate gemstone beads & flat copper cable chain.  The necklace measures up to 20” around (excluding the pendant, which measures 1”), but can be worn shorter.
