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.


  1. Thank you! Great shop and great buys. I may need to learn to sew, just to use those great trims. ;)

  2. I love buttons! These are sweet!

  3. I'm a sucker for some pretty buttons and these work PERFECTLY as earrings!!
