Renee says: “This is an exquisite 1800’s era antique button, which I’ve “Colour Washed” and set in sterling silver as a feature pendant. The image is a detailed pagoda with palm trees, which I find charming. The “Colour Wash” technique allows me to add permanent colour to the brass button, in this case several shades of green from deep to light, with tiny touches of pink. By rubbing/burnishing the paint back, I am able to achieve an old world patina. The fresh water pearl is the perfect addition to the pendant, adding a touch of class! I have shown this pendant on a black leather cord which is included, but it also looks great on a silver chain or cuff.  Antique button pendants…treasures from a bygone era to cherish today. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at a most fabulous piece you will cherish and wear for years to come.”

Includes black leather cord as shown in first image, but not silver chain.

Length: 2.5 inches   63 mm    See photos of pendant next to Australian .20 cent coin for size reference.

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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

Renee Blackwell, I ordered a pendant for my wife’s 40th birthday, and to say she was delighted is an understatement. She has a few of your pieces and has enjoyed wearing them over the years, so I was pretty sure she would like another piece. Your designs are true works of art. Thanks! Larry, Australia
