Modern and vintage in one charming earring. I weave the bezel around a Czech button using nylon thread and Japanese glass seed beads. The back of this earring is a beautiful as the front. Perfect for year round wear.
Czech beads and buttons are manufactured in small batches in primarily family owned factories. They are essentially artisan produced factory pieces. For that reason there is some variability in size and color. I’ve posted extra pictures so you can see the size difference between these shankless buttons. One is a bit taller and a tiny bit larger. Even these small differences can affect the stitch when I’m weaving the bezel and therefore the finally look.
14k GF V hook finishes at 1.25
The button is 12mm before I set it, it’s about the size of a dime.
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.
