Union Buttons On Buttons, Now A Necklace!

Way back about two summers ago, I found this bag of, what I think to be, union buttons.  I loved the colors..they were dated...and had great graphics.  Now what do you do with cute union buttons?  I glued them on to a large button and added velvet cord and what a fun conversation necklace.  

Upon doing a wee bit of research I think the "I.B.T.C.W.& H."  means, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Chauffeurs, Warehouse men and Helpers of America.  Interesting huh?  I suppose you got a button each month.  The number is the local organization.  

I don't know much about this...but, I do know, the graphic artist was a forward thinker!  Kudos to that person or company!
