Renee says: “When I first started incorporating buttons into my creations, they were almost always vintage buttons. But one day while in Paris a button collector showed me her stash of Antique buttons. To say I was smitten, is an understatement! I soon came to understand and appreciate these are rare and unique treasures from a by gone era to cherish today! This pendant is slightly smaller than some, see dimensions below. I have coupled a lovely fresh water pearl with the antique 1800’s era button, which I’ve “Colour Washed” in shades of rusty red and butterscotch. I then burnished/rubbed the button back for an old world look. Set in solid sterling silver this sweet pendant can be worn on a long or short chain, cord or pearls. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek. A stunning historical statement piece to enjoy for years to come.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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