Renee says: “Remarkable 1800’s era antique brass button, which I’ve set in sterling silver as statement pendant. This lovely piece can be worn with a silver or gold chain, leather cord or pearls for ultimate versatility. I love the “three cranes flying” image on the button which is in great detail. I have “Colour Washed” this piece in rich tones of purple, red, fuchsia and black, then rubbed back to create and old world patina. A glorious pendant that you will wear and treasure for years to come, I call these pieces “Wearable History.” Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

Length: 2 inches   50.8 mm    See photo of pendant next to Australian .10 cent coin for size reference.

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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

As a avid Renee Blackwell Jewellery Design wearer since 2000 – I just received my latest gorgeous gold vermeil earrings – just what I wanted – light gold and easy care … wore them last night for my first Christmas Cheer party. I was complimented and would highly recommend RBJD for the first class service and high quality of her jewellery. Maree
