Very nice tourista piece. Any good craft store should have bags of bits and pieces of shell, and stone. If nothing else, they'll have shell buttons. A fabric shop will have buttons as well.

Well the thing is that you would have to work the mother-of-pearl to match the rest of the pieces.

For larger pieces of MOP you can check out knife making suppliers who have MOP blank scales. That is where I got some of my MOP for a Moro kris restoration years ago.
