Description

These small but perfectly formed stud earrings have been created using a mould from my own stash of vintage glass buttons, I've made these dainty earrings using jewel enamels - also known as UTEE or ultra thick embossing enamels - it's a medium temperature thermostatic plastic that when melted you can use to fill moulds! In this case I used a silicone mould from a vintage glass dot and swirl pattern button!

I've created my own marbled jewel enamel, a combination of deep pink and two different purples, plus pink and purple mica powder, melted it down to a molten loveliness then placed it in the mould to cool into the button shape you see! I've also added highlights with a rich gold gilding wax to really bring out the detail of these little beauties and then gave it a coat of clear varnish to add extra protection!

They are really cute and dainty, approximately 1cm by 1cm and really lightweight too! I've used special hypoallergenic surgical steel ear posts and silver plated scroll backings. They also come to you packaged in a UK made Eco-friendly recycled Kraft card earring box.

Inspiration

This was in a collection of clear glass vintage buttons I purchased a few years ago at a charity shop. I noticed that all of them had fantastic details and patterns to them so I made moulds of a few and melted jewel enamels into them to see what they looked like! I was blown away by the intricate detailing on these little beauties, admiring the skill of the original maker creating these vintage button moulds years ago!
