Renee says: “Classically beautiful! I have enclosed the antique button in gold tone locket and dangled from the gold chain, for a truly superb pendant guaranteed to delight. (I am including the chain, as it works perfectly with the pendant.) The button is from the 1800’s and I’ve “Colour Washed” it in deepest green, then then burnished back to achieve the patina. This is without a doubt one of the most delightful pieces to emerge from the studio of late, and I guarantee you will love it as much as I do. Antique button pendants…treasures from a bygone era to cherish today. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at a most fabulous piece you will enjoy & wear for years to come.”

Antique Picture Buttons:
Making their appearance in the mid 1800’s era, Picture Buttons became fashionable by the late 1870’s and were made until about the 1920’s. Most were manufactured in Europe by master craftsmen and are remarkably beautiful and well made. A Picture Button is metal, sometimes a combination of metals such as steel, silver, copper or brass. Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors. Many Picture Buttons feature designs that depict fables, myths, operas, scenes or popular items of the era. Picture Buttons are true miniature treasures from a bygone era.
Renee Blackwell, I ordered a pendant for my wife’s 40th birthday, and to say she was delighted is an understatement. She has a few of your pieces and has enjoyed wearing them over the years, so I was pretty sure she would like another piece. Your designs are true works of art. Thanks, Larry Perth, Australia
