Renee says: “My hubby and lived on a sailboat off and on for five years! It was a lovely 50 foot sail boat, and we were in the “Sea of Cortez” which is the water between the Baha of California side and the mainland of Mexico. It was a wonderful adventure, and left me with a life long love of sailing. So when I see a vintage button with a sail boat & lighthouse, you know I’ll have to create a treasure! Set in solid sterling silver, I have set the button with a lovely peachy pearl. I call this a “Petite” pendant as it’s smaller than most that I create. See dimensions below. Antique button pendants….treasures from a by gone era to cherish today. 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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.

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
