Renee says: “I came up with the design for my “turning pendants” one day while I was in my studio with a beautiful collection of vintage Czechoslovakian buttons I found in an Antique shop in Tasmania. These are vintage glass buttons from the late 1940’s thru’ to the mid-1950’s era, in perfect condition, and absolutely delightful. All the buttons were the same size, which made it much easier to design a pendant that features two different buttons. I paired these buttons up with opposing colours for optimal effect and to give the wearer the opportunity for two distinctive pieces. Set in solid, hammered sterling silver, these pendants are one of a kind treasures. On this pendant, one button is a bright cherry red, and the other is a lovely shiny black button with a sort of art deco pattern. These turning button pendants look great worn short or on a longer chain. Click on images for up close peek.”

About Vintage Czechoslovakian Glass Buttons:
The majority of glass buttons made during the 20th century were made in what is now Czechoslovakia, handmade by skilled button makers. In 1918 to mid 1940’s era, popular styles of glass buttons include pictorial, cut crystal and realistic which is like pictorials. Art Deco styles started to appear during the Art Deco period. Through the years the button production slowed, especially during WW2, and then started again and skilled button makers refined their skills. Some of the most beautiful, colorful glass buttons came from Czechoslovakia. Today many vintage glass buttons are referred to as Czech glass.
I received a lovely pair of earrings from my sister. They came from Renee Blackwell Design, Queensland, Australia. They are so very elegant, so classy that they will be my go-to earrings. I have known Renee for many years and have other pieces she has made, and they are the most unique and special pieces that I own. When I wear them, I always get the nicest compliments! Jane
