Who doesn't love Silver and Turquoise!
Do you find it hard to find quality, genuine Jewellery that compliments your boho chic style? Well, I have the solution for you.....
These earrings are just amazingly stunning and are the perfect accessory for that Vintage/Boho look.
I once met a gorgeous older French lady, who is a friend of one of my neighbours. These were the early days of me living in France, so my French was basic at best. Fortunately my friend was able to translate most of the conversation for me.
It turned out that this lady was a seamstress for one of the high end fashion houses, which she was reluctant to reveal which one. To this day, I often wonder why she felt unable to reveal which one? Anyway she worked in Paris during the 1950's until the 1970's. She told me that often times when the fashion house ended a line, the fabrics, laces and buttons were often times given to the top seamstresses by way of thanks for their hard work.
Apparently, this lady had so much designer fabric and buttons in her attic, it would send any vintage fashionista into a total spin. I was never invited to see this for myself unfortunately.
One day, I had a little envelope in my mail box & inside were these 3 buttons, with a note saying how she enjoyed meeting me & she wanted me to have these to create something to bring them back to life. I was so touched and honoured to do something really special with all 3 of them. What a beautiful gift. I contacted her to thank her and through my friend who spoke for me, I was able to find out these buttons were produced in Paris post war to bring glamour back into French fashion. So they are estimated to being around the 1950's.
They have an intricate pattern with a lovely Turquoise gemstone in the centre. I have bezel set them in a solid Sterling Silver setting & added a Sterling Silver cup with a lovely grey freshwater pearl. The earrings are a stud style back, which is perfect if you love having dangling earrings, but prefer the security of a stud & butterfly back.
Although these earrings make a statement, they are surprisingly light and very comfortable to wear. As with all my pieces, these are a one of a kind & have been completely hand crafted, using 100% genuine 925 Sterling Silver and grey freshwater pearls.
* If you love having matching set Jewellery, then you're in luck! I have also crafted a ring with this same button. Please see the listing as these earrings in a set with the ring.
