September 2015 New In Shop for Talisman Studios

I went on a bit of a buying binge recently.  The stars were aligned and gorgeous antique buttons seemed to show up wherever I looked, from my cache of “buttons in waiting”(pieces I have not gotten around to stringing and photographing) to online shopping venues and a pure “Wow!” moment at a local antiques store.

Here are a few of the new designs, but it’s only a selection! Pop over to Talisman Studios to see everything available.  Hopefully you’ll find just the right ponytail holder to wrap up your hair when you do.

Antique Mother of Pearl Button

Often I come across remarkable antique buttons, as you can see from the selections with the Talisman Studios shop, but until I began doing beadwork, I wasn’t sure how I could use these miniature pieces of art. Luckily, the beading inspired me to incorporate the tiny delicacies into jewelry.  Here is my most recent – a princess length necklace.

The piece features a Mother of Pearl antique button with a brass escutcheon. Made in the late 1800’s, the pearl background serves to highlight the romantic details of flower and wreath border.  Bronze colored faceted English Cut glass beads, along with seed beads in iridescent hues compliment the colors within the shell button.

This is a one of a kind piece available for sale in the Talisman Studios shop.
