Cally-Vintage Button Earrings

With everything going on around here I have not managed to make very much jewelry lately. Here is a pair that I listed today. They are one of my favorites. I named them Cally.
Cally-from the Greek name Calantha meaning "Beautiful blossom."Such lovely little buttons! I'm not sure of the plastic, it is a very rigid plastic. To the bottom of this earring I have added a vintage bead in an opalescent pearl. The earring and filigree measure 3/4" across. The total earring measures 1 3/4" from top to bottom.These are gorgeous parts of history. The secrets they know and stories to tell. I feel a wonderful connection with the past when I hold one of these beauties.©Timeless Trinkets 2009
