Antique button jewelry - created from original buttons of the past...
By choosing a one-of-a-kind piece from the Sentimental Journey Jewelry line, you own a piece of history. The original antique buttons from which the wearable art has been created may have been part of an 1860's Civil War era outfit, a latter 19th Century Victorian party dress, a 1920's flapper ensemble, or a 1950's housedress.
Most of the buttons date from the mid 1800's through the mid 1900's. Materials include metals, early plastics such as celluloid or bakelite, glass and mother-of-pearl.
Designed by Linda S. Welch, these creations fit into the wardrobe and home of the contemporary woman, who smiles every time she looks at the small piece of art in her possession, thinking back to past times and creating her own Sentimental Journey.
All items are gift boxed and come with an explanation card and dates of the buttons used in the piece.
