Item details

These Hot Cross Buttons in mother of pearl shell reminded me a little of the Easter buns, hence the name.

They're crafted in Bali, Indonesia, from cream and light taupe shades of mother-of-pearl shell with a black resin backing.

They're a little crudely made, having been hand-tooled, and there will be small differences between each button as you can maybe see from my photos.

They'd add a simple, sweet touch to many a knitted or textile garment but could just as easily be used in scrapbooks, on cards, or as button jewels.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment. Don't have it? You can still pay that way using your credit card. Just click on the PayPal icon at checkout and follow the prompts.

Size: Approx 20mm in diameter – 3/4in
Thickness: Approx 2mm
Pieces per pack: 6
Colour: Cream and light taupe
Materials: Mother-of-pearl shell, also known as nacre, resin
Shipping: These items will be ship from Ubud, Bali, by Pos Indonesia registered mail with a tracking number, and please note that you will almost certainly have to sign for the package upon delivery. The buttons will be well packaged to prevent damage in transit, and the cost of the packaging is included in the shipping fee.

The Republic of Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim nation state but has among its population a minority of believers in the Christian faith – about 6 per cent Protestant and 3 per cent Catholic.

Freedom of religion is guaranteed under the republic's constitution and so it happens that nowhere else in the world has so large a Christian community been established in the midst of Islam.

The Portuguese brought Roman Catholicism to Indonesia in the 16th century and the Dutch brought Protestant Christianity in the 17th century.

Most areas of this vast archipelago of more than 17,000 islands are predominantly Muslim, a few areas are predominantly Christian and the island of Bali is predominantly Hindu.

In Bahasa Indonesia, the language of Indonesia, the word for Christian is Kristen.

It’s magical to feel this energy
I’m feeling high spiritually
See the tears of joy run down my face
Happiness is with me inside
What a wonderful life I can see
Wherever I go I seek the truth
What a peaceful world it could be
If you share these magic words with me
Tat Twam Asi - treat me like you treat yourself
Tat Twam Asi - see me like you see yourself
Love me like you love yourself
Tat Twam Asi - Coz I am you and you are me

~ Tat Twam Asi (I Am You) from Svara Semesta, the sophomore album from Balinese performer Ayu Laksmi. Words and music by Cha Cahyadi.
