I made these lovely earrings from vintage pearl button shaped findings. These were made circa 1950s-60s and were designed to become clip-back earrings. I sourced them from old warehouse stock and have glued them to gold plated post-back studs to create a comfortable version of a classic earring style.
These pearl buttons measure 3.5 cm in diameter. I have finished them with comfort clutches to provide a snug and secure fit.
Sustainably made in Australia with vintage material which may hold some evidence of their former life in a deepened patina and minor wear; I think that is what gives them so much charm.
