How much do I love texture? I hate to admit this, but I have been known to take molding clay and cautiously (making sure no one was looking) impressed the clay onto the wall in a restaurant in Florida that had an organic texture I couldn’t leave without. It was on a dare actually. If you know anything about molding clay – it has to set up for a little while and harden. It wasn’t that easy hiding it from the waitress when she came back to the table.
Although that mold can’t be used on metal, this pattern is the closest I’ve ever come to it. So it’s very near and dear to my heart.
These lusciously textured silver buttons are 1/2″ in size – if you need larger, you can request it here. I sell all my buttons in quantity sets of five. You have the ability to purchase one set of 5 with a patina and another set without. They come to you fully finished on the front as well as on the back – a detail that you as well as your customers will appreciate. They are all made using .935 argentium sterling silver. These buttons work great with wrapped bracelets but are only limited by your creative endeavors. A 1.9mm hole works best when using 1.5mm leather cord. But when using larger cord, I drill 3.0mm holes.
The buttons are carefully handcrafted to give you a more modern, artful selection that not just you will appreciate but your customers will love. If you select to have them oxidized, they will be finished and buffed with a fine English museum wax that will protect and keep the rich patina in years to come. Because each button is handmade, there may be variations in what you see photographed – but the differences will be minimal.
