Renee says: “I have combined an antique button and the remarkable “Colour Wash” technique to create this lovely one of a kind pendant. The “Colour Wash” technique allows me to add colour to an otherwise neutral button, in this case pewter. The button itself is from the 18oo’s era with a lovely “old world” pattern- A true treasure from a bygone era. Set as always in solid sterling silver, this piece looks great on a silver cuff or chain, or the pearls as shown in photos. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.

Rave Review:

Hi Renee, Thanks for my button earrings received today in cold, wet, old Melbourne but they certainly brightened my day on their arrival! They are just perfect, and yes you are correct, even better in real life. They looked great on your recent video and I am thrilled with them. Many thanks, Anndrea
