Renee says: “I came up with the design for my “turning pendants” one day while I was in my studio with a beautiful collection of vintage Czechoslovakian buttons I found in an Antique shop in Tasmania. These are vintage glass buttons from the late 1940’s thru’ to the mid-1950’s era, in perfect condition, and absolutely delightful. All the buttons were the same size, which made it much easier to design a pendant that features two different buttons. I paired these buttons up with opposing colours for optimal effect and to give the wearer the opportunity for two distinctive pieces. Set in solid, hammered sterling silver, these pendants are one of a kind treasures. On this pendant, one button is a bright white with silver “weave” and the other side is brick red with silver flash. These turning button pendants look great worn short or on a longer chain. Vintage button pendants….treasures from a by gone era to cherish today! Click on images for up close peek.”

Renee’s jewellery is absolutely stunning! I love that she sources the most unique items to create beautiful individual pieces like my 18th C. French brass button set in sterling silver. It is my most treasured piece and I love that it has a history that pre-dates me! Linda
About Vintage Czechoslovakian Glass Buttons:
The majority of glass buttons made during the 20th century were made in what is now Czechoslovakia, handmade by skilled button makers. In 1918 to mid 1940’s era, popular styles of glass buttons include pictorial, cut crystal and realistic which is like pictorials. Art Deco styles started to appear during the Art Deco period. Through the years the button production slowed, especially during WW2, and then started again and skilled button makers refined their skills. Some of the most beautiful, colorful glass buttons came from Czechoslovakia. Today many vintage glass buttons are referred to as Czech glass.
