…another name for this necklace could be “Protection from Pricks” 😏😆. I’ve used 3 vintage & antique thimbles floating above each other, with a handmade tassel at the bottom. The chain reflects the mixed metals of the thimbles with antique work clothes buttons giving extra style. A great necklace for the seamstress or just about anyone!
I chose two wonderful Antique buttons to create this necklace! 1800’s red/burgundy button and a gold tone lady/girl button. I matched them with an exquisite vintage Napier chain that compliments both of these buttons. The buttons are set with the shanks intact to preserve their collectibility. A wonderful Heirloom piece to pass down!

It’s all about perspective! Look closely at this necklace and you will realize that it is one half of a pair of antique tortoise rimmed glasses! I’ve used two types of vintage chain for interest. Below the spectacle I have added a sweet small vintage key and an antique ball button and luster glass button. Such a fun necklace!
These used to be men’s cufflinks in the 1920’s….and 100 years later I have given them a new life as earrings. The outside frame of the cufflink is white celluloid set in sterling silver and the interior is black celluloid.
Imagine the dapper man that never left his home without his stylish cuff links. These exquisite black and white cufflinks are reimagined into a one of a kind bracelet that is sure to cause a stir! The bracelet features eleven vintage cuff links in a pretty, perfect row.

Eleven vintage 1915s - 1920s-era mother of pearl & celluloid cuff links set in sterling. Monogram letters are: M or W (you decide), B, H, & L
Gold Victorian cufflinks are combined to create this exquisite bracelet. These cufflinks were popular from the 1900’s-1915. The pieces are finely detailed and becoming hard to source. This bracelet will not disappoint!
Vintage Pearl buttons are just stunning. They are chameleons, changing hues to coordinate with whatever color you are wearing! This is a combination of two separate Pearl buttons that I stacked. The larger is a smoky pearl button & the top one is more white with some aurora flashes of color. The vintage silver tone watch band gives this piece a sleek look!

This late 1800’s large picture button was originally titled “Cupid at the Fountain”. I have left the shank intact to preserve its’ collectibility. I have stacked a smaller antique button above it to give it even more interest. Wearable History!
So much to love about this early 1800’s button! The geometric simple star with border design is so modern for a button so old. The wide no pinch band is comfortable & adjustable. Historically chic! Please note: this button is over 200 years old and retains some character tarnish. See pictures.
