Dress this pretty pendant up with a little black dress. Wear it to lunch with a crisp white top and jeans. However you choose to style it, the pendant is really a one of a kind. I bought just one of the Czech glass buttons. The base of the button is crystal. There is bright gold detailing on the front.
I weave around the button to set it, first creating a frame and then sewing the buttons into the frame with smaller beads. I finished the pendant with 3mm pearls in vintage gold in the surround and 2mm pearls in the bail.
Czech buttons are pressed from vintage molds and then ground, painted, and painstakingly detailed by hand. The paint is permanent high-temperature fired enamel. Two brothers in their 70s are the only artisans currently making buttons in the Czech Republic. I love hunting for these treasures. I hope you appreciate their artistry as much as I do.
The finished pendant is 1.5 inches across and 2.25 inches from the top of the bail, on an 18 inch gold filled chain.
The necklace arrives boxed.
Thank you for shopping.
