Solid silver thimble and vintage button necklace.
I love vintage mother of pearl buttons - their opalescent shimmers being stronger the older the button is. Paired with my thimble and hung on a 30" long chain they create a lovely sophisticated piece of jewellery together (they chink too, which is a lovely sound!).
I have acquired many thimbles and vintage haberdashery objects over the years at French brocantes and English car boots. I decided to choose a small thimble from my collection (which was a difficult task!), and have it cast into sterling silver. It is 2cm tall.
Once cleaned up, filed, given lots of emery, I solder a jump ring to the top in which to thread the silver trace chain before polishing.
I hand make all my findings and use loose sterling silver trace chain, so let me know if you'd prefer a different necklace length as this is easy for me to do.
Please note that the buttons will vary slightly as they're old, but I carefully select the best ones, and they all have the four holes too.
This necklace has a really nice weighty feel.
I package the necklace in one of my branded gift boxes, complete with all the trimmings, and post by small parcel normal post.
Thank you for looking, I hope you like it,
I have fond memories playing with my Grandmas button tin and sorting them in to various piles etc! All the women in my family were seamstresses, so it was no wonder I followed a similar path and studied textiles. As I've progressed as a designer jeweller, textiles and haberdashery play a huge part in my designs.
