Bright cut pewter buttons date from the 1890’s and are just breathtaking! The artisans would lay a tint over the pewter button then cut out the design and add the gold & other colors to go with the bright pewter. The buttons without a dangle have a deeper burgundy tint & the buttons with the dangles have almost a neutral tint..a muddy burgundy or blue. Yummy! Features:
1890’s bright cut pewter buttons 5/8” diameter
Aurora Beads - 3/8” diameter
Sterling Silver ear wires
Finished length - 1 1/2” with bead dangle - 7/8” without dangle
These vintage earrings always take me back to my mom getting dressed up and snapping on some version of these clip earrings. The brown amber stones with green, orange & yellow accent rhinestones are so glamorous yet easy to wear every day!
I have converted these screwback earrings for a more comfortable and modern look. I’ve given them a slight drop and added a brown crystal. The rhinestones are a brownish Amber, so slightly more subdued than the yellow Amber. Three aurora borealis stones are interspersed to add more sparkle…Lots to love!
These are such cool pieces. They are marked Sterling - from Norway but it looks like the sterling was finished with a gold wash. I have added a small cluster of seed pearls at the top for more interest. So Unique!

Fun vibrant colors pack a lot of punch in these petite earrings. The enamel oranges were sourced from a vintage necklace, and the amazing modern yellow aurora bead was a perfect base for the darling vintage leaf beads! So sweet and pretty!
These a-ma-zing, SUPER LONG, earrings have been hanging in my studio for months! I had converted them from clips but they were so dirty and my solutions weren’t cleaning them to my satisfaction. My OCD self knew I would need to be in a punishing mood to wire grind the rust and polish each spangle individually to get them clean. So today was the day! 42 of the little pieces have been touched by me front and back! They aren’t perfect but they are now in good vintage condition! Very dramatic…I have a shorter neck and they brush my collarbone. So when you need an “oh my gosh where did you get those” day….these are ready.
These earrings are the perfect finishing touch when you need a light and stunning pair of earrings! I repurposed these vintage clip on earrings so you can enjoy the amazing vintage stones 50 + years later!
