These are the perfect earrings for the serious seamstress & quilter! I have taken 1930’s brown Bakelite buttons and paired them with vintage unused bobbin thread. They are surprisingly light and will swing showing both sides of the thread. Fun!
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 green celluloid set in sterling silver and the interior is a green mottled stone.
The green rhinestones pop within the bright white rhinestone starburst frame. Just spectacular! These sweet mid century clip earrings are ready to re-enter into the spotlight as a modern version of themself.
These used to be men’s cufflinks in the 1920’s….and 100 years later I have given them a new life as earrings. These silver and deep blue enamel cufflinks are as classic as a pin striped suit…but always in style!
These wonderful gold filled Victorian cufflinks have gold filled ornate scrolling surrounding a lovely turquoise colored stone or glass. They show a little wear but look pretty great for being 120+ years old! Features:
Lots of colors in these pearl button earrings! The natural “waves” of the shell were typically seen in the older buttons, before mainstream manufacturing was common. These are larger in size but still light and comfortable.
These little phones were given away in the 1960’s as an advertising promotion. Many of us confiscated these from our folks to use for our Barbies! The back says: “The Princess Phone - It’s little, it’s lovely, it lights”! Such a fun conversation piece (no pun intended). Please Note: these are longer and heavier than most of my earrings.
These steel buttons were made from late 1700’s thru early 1800’s by riveting small steel pieces onto a brass backing. Some cut steel buttons combined stamped and riveting processes. Originally they were thought of as a substitute for diamonds and marcasite. They must have sparkled in the candlelight of an evening gathering! I have left the shank on the back as to preserve their collectibility.
