Renee says: “I found this stunning button in a lovely antique shop in London, and knew it would make for a special pendant. The 1800’s era brass button features a detailed floral image which I really love. I have “Colour Washed” the button in rich shades of green, aqua & touches of chocolate, then burnished back for an old world patina. Because of the gold tones in the button, this pendant can be worn with a gold or silver chain, pearls or leather cord for versatility. A one of a kind treasure you will reach for over and over, never dating or going out of style. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at a piece that you will wear and enjoy for years to come!”
Does not include silver or gold chain as shown in photos.
Length: 2 inches 50 mm See photos of pendant next to Australian 1.00 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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.
“As a fashion and style blogger, nothing excites me more than discovering designers doing amazingly creative things. And when those “things” are stunning accessories that make a woman feel good every time they wear them, then that’s a winning combination. That’s what I love about Reneé Blackwell’s pieces.” Nikki Parkinson
