This stud button was originally made from pieces of lace that I stiffened with starch and then painted with a copper paint.  The copper-painted lace was then attached to a copper wire and then dipped in a copper-suspension bath that was electrified so that the copper suspension would attach to the copper paint and create a layer of metal with that original lace still inside. I sent those metal pieces - the copper-coated lace - to Agus, my collaborator, in Bali and now, years and years later, he has made them into stud buttons.
