Happy Independence Day! I know you are probably expecting to see some red white and blue here today, but instead I am nodding to the past by using some beautiful vintage brass and carved mother of pearl buttons in my earrings.
I found these at the Bead & Button show, at a great booth called Nifty Thrifty Dry Goods. The buttons have a nice shank on the back and I wire wrapped them with some faceted Shell pearls. I have never really seen buttons like these anywhere.
These earrings can be found for sale in my online webstore, Lorelei Eurto Jewelry.
