Description

In 32 years of buying and selling antique buttons I have built up a huge inventory of what the button collecting world calls button pokes. These are the buttons that are found in boxes at button shows and each button is the same price - $1.00, $2.00. $5.00, $10.00, etc. They are also the buttons that are most often used to make jewelry. I have puzzled for years how to create my own design that would showcase the buttons. Gravity is the biggest enemy of making jewelry with buttons if the desire is to retain the button.

Anyway, and this is true, the way to do it came to me in a dream last week. I am a designer, not an engineer. But, with a little tweaking, what I dreamed worked and I love the result. The bracelet I make takes hundreds of tiny pieces. The resulting base bracelet reminds me of Miriam Haskel's designs - lots of of small pieces create the whole.

So, that being said, I will be listing the ones I have created over the past week.

This one has 28 lovely antique buttons - pictorials, cut steels, carved pearls, jewels, celluloid, and others. The largest button is 3/4" and the smallest is 3/8" in diameter. The color scheme of this one is mostly blue, gold and silver. It is really break taking in person and that is because the antique buttons are so lovely. I am the engineer and the buttons are the real artist.

The POKE value of these buttons is about $78.00, but I hope that isn't how you will value this bracelet.

The decorative portion of the bracelet is 6 & 1/4" long when laid flat. I have a 6 & 1/4" wrist and the bracelet fits me well. Overall length, including a 1" adjustment tail, is 8 ". It is 1 & 1/4" at its widest point. The base is very slinky and flexible. And, it is durable. When I have to change out a button, taking it apart is much harder than putting it together. These buttons are going to stay put; you won't lose any as you wear it.

You will not be disappointed if you buy this. It is one of a kind. It really is stunning - hard not to be with so many beautiful antique buttons. It would also be a very special gift for anyone you know who loves and/or collects antique buttons.

Combined shipping is available.
