Description

Very unusual intricately carved Tagua nut or sometimes referred to as “Vegetable Ivory” buttons. Buttons are also what is called a whistle button. This is because the button craftsmen would only put one hole in the front of the button and two in the back, looking like an old-fashioned whistle. This would then protect the thread from damage but there’s also the possibility it would catch air and whistle! I mounted the buttons in gold plated cups dangling from hand beaded gold filled earring wires. The earring wires are extra long for added security.

Welcome to my UnButtons shop of Antique Button jewelry! I create every bracelet, pendant and pair of earrings using buttons that are 75 to 150 years old that I have selected from my vast collection of over 30 years. I am fascinated by the history of the miniature works of art and I hope you will be too! Note: Additional UnButtons one of a kind pieces are for sale in my etsy shop, etsy.com/shop/unbuttons
