This sweet brooch features a snippet of Victorian era lace, encased between 2 pieces of glass. This pretty white lace is from France and dates back to the turn of the century. I've added a bit of sparkle to this charm with a faux pearl and a crystal bead. I've a tiny little silver colored birdhouse charm at the bottom, I just couldn't resist. This brooch is made from a vintage, shaped safety pin, with a bit of scrunched silk ribbon.
The glass charm measures 1"x1". The entire charm measures 2-1/4" long.
I use a silver colored solder that is lead free. This button has been hand soldered with a signature ruffled edge, then hand polished to a to a brilliant shine.
I'll be offering more pretty charms, so be sure to check back often.
