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!).
A perfect piece of jewellery for sewers, quilters and haberdashery enthusiasts!
My thimble is cast in solid silver from an antique/old specimen. One of my vintage & found collections. It took me a while of accumilating them at French Brocantes and English car boots before I managed to decide on the perfect one to have cast so that I could create these wonderful necklaces with them.
This one is 2cm tall. It has a lovely weighty feel. Once filed and cleaned up, I soldered a jump ring to the top in which to thread a 30" long sterling silver trace chain. It fits current style trends and would be perfect to layer with other necklaces too.
I hand make all my findings and use loosechain so if you'd like a longer or shorter length please let me know when in the check-out as it wouldn't be a problem.
Packaged in one of my branded gift boxes, with all the trimmings, and posted 1st class small parcel post.
Please note, the vintage button will slightly vary each time due to their old and unique nature.
P.s. If you this please also see my New Design - My 'charmed thimble necklace' also available on my shop.
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.
