  • If you have a button that has similar meaning to you, I can take a mould from it and create one or a number of smaller replicas for you  - please contact me to discuss this.

     

    These exact studs are stock - available for instant dispatch!

    Made from Art Clay Silver* which when fired becomes pure / fine 999 silver, with a sterling 925 silver post and butterfly back, you can choose whichever of these single studs you would like - designed to go with the Bajoran earcuffs in my geeky listing and shown in the final collage photo.

     

    I inherited my gran's button box, filled with treasures and family history, including a tin filled with what she called her 'specials' - buttons she saved from the people that she loved who were no longer with us - her sister Margo, her Auntie Ethel and her son, my Uncle Chris.

    Both these have been made using a mould I created with one of the attractive buttons that would have been either Margo's or Great, Great Auntie Ethel. (I can just remember my GGA Ethel, and her catch phrase of 'am I doing it right' as she won at cards)

    I've used 925 sterling silver ear posts and butterfly backs

     

    Dimensions for the smaller (style 02) are 15mm x 15mm. It will drop 10mm from your piercing and it weighs 3.2g

    Dimensions for the larger (style 01) are 20mm x 20mm. It will drop 12 mm from your piercing and it weighs 4.6g

    *Art Clay Silver utilises the waste from traditional silver manufacture yet, upon firing, becomes fine silver; 999 silver rather than 925 - also known as pure silver. It's a magical, alchemical process - I've more details on my various social media sites and a (rubbish!) video of the clay firing on youtube, wordpress and facebook.( Here https://www.facebook.com/DawnGillDesigns/videos/647565682068418 ) I only use natural light and take all pictures in my kitchen, so I have used a variety of backgrounds to help display the colouration and avoid your disappointment

     

    *** This listing is for one stud only, the ear cuffs are available in a separate listing ***

     

    Thanks for looking! Live Long and Prosper \\//_
