Renee says: “I never get tired of designing beautiful pendants with these remarkable Antique Buttons from the 1800’s era. This button is part brass & part steel, with a detailed image of cherub with bow and arrow. Set in solid sterling silver as always, it looks great with pearls, gold or silver chains, black cord. I have “Colour Washed” this stunning button in rich tones of deep pink & fuchsia, then rubbed/burnished back to achieve an old world patina. A superior one of a kind piece, I guarantee you will love as much as I do. Antique button pendants….treasures from a by gone era to cherish today! Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

Hi Renee, To say that I am addicted is probably an understatement and at last count I am care taking (as I consider that they will be pieces I will pass on to my daughters) over 30 pairs of stunning earrings and now two pendants. I am constantly stopped and asked about your pieces and it gives me much pleasure to tell them about the earrings and of course, you. Keep doing what you do because not only are the pieces beautiful but they are unique and make me feel truly happy when I wear them! Cheers, Ros
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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.
