Gorgeous Victorian button necklace featuring intricate design of a swallow with vines and berries in brass with shadowy dark contrast. Don't miss the dragonfly in the top corner! This ornate necklace has a secret detail on the back making it virtually double sided - with a brass compass stamping on the back - see photo for more details.

I accented this with 40 shimmering czech glass 8mm beads. The metal picture button is circa 1880 and was probably originally a cloak or Victorian ladies coat button.

Necklace measures about 16", the button measures just over 1", and the pendant is about 1.75" tall.
