Vintage Yellow Gucci Button Bee Long Earrings
My client wanted a bright, happy, long dangling statement pair of earrings. I think I managed to meet her brief with these.
These buttons date back to the late 1940's and had a long run on Gucci catwalks. These button were originally designed to be worn on blouses, dresses & skirts. They can be found in a rainbow of colours that really is classic Gucci. I managed to get a hold of a few of these in different colours from a collection in Paris.
The buttons have been set in solid sterling silver, with a very simple silver edge, so as to not detract from those sunny yellow bees. With extra long, curved ear hooks, they certainly set out to be noticed.
