A beautifully detailed French button with a glass tortoise cabochon is attached to a vintage antique gold metal family crest to form the 3-1/2" long pendant piece. Vintage glass beads in various shades of amber and brown to match the button complete the necklace.
The necklace is 19" long with a 3" long extender chain.
This necklace is one of a kind and lovingly handmade by me in my home studio in San Francisco. Most of my creations are a mix of antique, vintage, and new parts, some of which may (or may not) show signs of aging and wear. I feel that such “imperfections” only add character to the piece and hope that you do too.
