Renee says: “Enchanting pendant from my “Petite Collection“ featuring a fresh water pearl and antique button, which I’ve “Colour Washed” then set in solid sterling silver. I call these “Petites” because they are smaller overall than most of my antique button pendants. (See photo of pendant next to Australian .50 cent coin for size reference.) Perfect for those who love the look and feel of my pieces, but prefer their jewellery on the smaller side. The colours I’ve used on this button are rich butterscotch and rusty brown and I then burnished the paint back to show the delightful old world pattern of the piece. This pendant can easily be worn with gold or silver chain or cuffs and pearls. Click on images for up close peek at this delight!”

Hi Renee Just wanted to let you know my parcel arrived today. The earrings are just stunning, I am now jealous of the person I am giving them to for Christmas. Regards, Helen
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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.
