The quality 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. The button, 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."

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.
