Classic Floral Dome Czech Button Earring

Classic Floral Dome Czech Button Earring


She is nowhere near as mysterious or flashy as many of her Artisan Czech button brethren, but invariably when someone visits my studio and sees the hundreds of buttons neatly sorted in portend and protected boxes, they always come to this one. The glass pressing is a simple flat purple, but the silver and gold hand painting  create a vintage style classic. BTW , all the "silver" painting is actually done with a traditional Czech platinum finish). 

The quality 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 button is 18mm across and with the bezel and wire sits surprisingly lightly on your ear. 

Each pair of my Artisan Czech Button Earrings is made from two individually crafted and finished Artisan Czech Glass buttons made by a team of traditional craftsman in small,  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."

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.
