Rich Royal Purple Czech Glass Button Silver Dragonfly Earrings

Across world cultures, dragonflies celebrate change and self-realization -- and the graceful lines of their elongated wings make for great design! This take on the traditional Czech dragonfly mold has a deep purple glass  button with the dragonfly body and antennae precisely handpainted in metallic silver.

The silver-plated brass earring findings are made in the USA and designed by Becky Nunn. I've been making variations of this type of Czech Button earring for five years now and these are by far the most comfortable and durable. However, the  bezels wires are not structured to wear to sleep or swim.

Each pair of my Artisan Czech Button Earrings is made from two individually crafted and finished Artisan Czech Glass buttons made by traditional craftsman in small, traditional, often-home-based shops in Jablonec.   All painting -- whether on the top or back of the button, is done by hand and the buttons are traditionally finished with a high heat "fire-polish."

Click here for photographs of my craftsmen at work and more information about these beautiful  and challenged treasures.  Far too often , I hear people say they are sure the production of these buttons has stopped , but fortunately a pair of traditional pressers remain at work -- and your purchase today supports their continuing livelihood. 

I carefully remove the button shanks and smooth finish the back of each button before setting it. Because of the hand-pressed Artisan nature of the buttons , sometimes it will not sit precisely in the bezel. This pair sits evenly.
