Liosliath, Antique Floral Picture Button Necklace

A great name that fits the piece. Liosliath- Scotch Gaelic: "Dweller at the gray fortress". An old castle clothed in vines, flowers and memories.This necklace features an antique button from the late 1800's. I have mounted the button on a very nice brass filigree with complementary flowers. The pendant measures 1 1/8" across and the antique brass chain measures 18". The shank of the button has been left in place.Liosliath- Scoth Gaelic: "Dweller at the gray fortress".

I like to use every possible piece of watch parts that I come across, this necklace being no exception. Inside the shell of a vintage ladies wristwatch you will find a sage colored lily.Below dangle faceted Czech glass beads in shade of metallic they remind me of the rich soil beneath and the life of the garden. Above you will find a dragonfly visiting the garden. This is one of my favorite styles of necklace to make.
