These bold earrings really are a one of a kind and are show stoppers. The base of these buttons are crystal and are reverse painted in a rainbow purple fire AB flash enamel. There is matte gold bright gold enamel detailing on the front.
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.
Once I find the right pair, I weave around they buttons to set them, first creating a frame and then sewing the buttons into the frame with smaller seed beads. I finished the earring with 3mm Swarovski a pearls in coral.
Before stitching the buttons measure 27mm (a little over an inch). Finished they are 1.5 inches across and 2.25 inches from the top of the antique brass earwire.
I ship your earrings carded and boxed.
Thank you for shopping.
