Freshwater Pearl Buttons - White

I just added these  3/8"  Shank Buttons to my Web Shop

They are Freshwater Pearl Buttons.   Many of the Freshwater Pearl Buttons come from the upper Mississippi River.  It is an industry that doesn't exist anymore but in it's hey day, was thriving.  

Info about Pearl Industry  Here.

My Mother of Pearl Buttons are from old factories and have never been used.

What we love about the Freshwater Pearls is... they are White.

I love, love, love the creamy color of the Ocean Pearl Buttons.

But for some garments, I just want White!
