These lovely, solid silver button ear studs have been handmade by us in our workshop in Yorkshire. We chose these small, antique buttons to take casts from. The earring studs are cast in sterling silver and then oxidised, the raised areas are then polished to accentuate the details. The ear posts and backs are also made from sterling silver. We make matching button cufflinks, which can be found below in our related products section.
An interesting fact about buttons is that the Romans first used decorative buttons to fasten robes together but these were large and used singularly, more like a brooch. Functional buttons with buttonholes for fastening clothes together where first used in Germany in the 13th century. They soon became widespread with the rise of snug-fitting garments in the 13th and 14th century.
These very cute, little earring studs comes in one of our quality, branded gift boxes and they have been finished with a clear, protective, anti-tarnish coating.
We exhibit and sell our work through quality Craft and Design centres and Art galleries throughout the U.K.
