Sky Blue Sunflower Czech Button Earrings
These beautiful blue sunflower 18mm buttons dance in the the light -delicately dotted with just a bit of silver paint.
The secure lever findings are silver-plate over brass and rest comfortably on the ear. Weighting in at less than 1/3 of an ounce they are light, bright and brilliant on your ear.
Each pair of my Artisan Czech Button Earrings is made from two identical , individually crafted and finished Artisan Czech Glass buttons made by traditional craftsman in small, traditional, often-home-based shops in Jablonec. Many times the molds used have been in their families for many generations. All painting -- whether in the top of back of the button, is done by hand and the buttons are traditionally finished with a high heat "fire-polish."

Far too often , I hear people say they are sure the production of these buttons has stopped , but fortunately a small group of traditional pressers remain at work -- and your purchase today supports their continuing livelihood.
