Renee says: “ I love sailing, boats, the ocean and all things around the sea. (Hubby and I lived on a 50 foot sailboat in Mexico in the 90’s!) I also enjoy creating with the amazing European buttons from the 1800’s era-This piece features an anchor button in gold tones, with a fresh water pearl. I sourced this particular treasure at the “International Button Festival” which takes place every year in the USA. The button collector I purchased it from was French, and she had such an exquisite collection. Set as always in solid sterling silver, I consider this a feature piece, even though it’s a bit smaller than some of my pendants-See dimensions below. It can easily be worn on a gold or silver chain, or pearls for ultimate versatility. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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