Great everyday earring. It classic but also original. This Orange is always in season.
Many of my button earrings are shankless, not this one. It was a button with a metal shank in the back that I cut off before weaving around it. The back is concave so the netted bezel curves with the button.
I weave the bezel around a Czech button using nylon thread and silver Japanese glass seed beads. The Czech button makers have dwindled to just two brothers in their 70s. They use molds that can date to the 1920s.
A silver V ear wire finishes the earring at 1.5 inches for a modern vintage vibe.
The button is 18mm before I set it and measures .75 inches when wrapped, about the size of a quarter.
Like all my jewelry, this will arrive beautifully carded and packaged, ready to gift if you can bear to part with it.
Thanks for stopping by.
