Welcome.

I am Bob Benson and I make vegtable ivory buttons. My buttons are made from a rare palm seed that grows in Micronesia. This palm produces the largest seed of all the vegtable ivory palms in the world of which there are about 12 species. Since this tree producess a large seed all my buttons are unusually large. I embellish my buttons with many types of materials, such as Turquoise, mother of pearl, ammonite fossil, tiger-eye, dichroic glass, carved bone moon faces and florals.

I have many carved buttons made out of the same vegetable ivory material carved in Bali. I have the the largest supply of this material outside Pohnpei island the only place in the world this particular tree grows. I have been making buttons for five years and make a large vegtable ivory button, over 1 1/4" -2" in diameter. Thanks for your interest.
