The texture on these buttons looks like I pulled it right from a pair of my favorite summer linen pants. It’s a very light texture – sometimes simple and understated is what we need. This texture is a celebration of life’s quieter moments.
They are 1/2″ sterling buttons made from .935 argentium sterling silver. They are purchased in sets of 5. These buttons can come with a patina and I offer two different sized holes. The 1.9mm hole is perfect when working with 1.5mm leather cording. I drill 3.0mm holes for larger cording. Also, the buttons can come in other sizes. If interested, you can request that here. Though some like to use these for wrapped bracelet closures, they can be used for many various projects and are limited only by your imagination. Are you a sewist or knitter? Do you work in fiber? They are a fine addition and compliment many forms of handmade wearable art.
I carefully handcraft these buttons for a more modern selection that not just you will appreciate but your customers will love. I use a fine English museum wax over oxidized buttons. It is layered on and buffed to a nice polish. This helps protect and retain the rich patina in the years to come. Because each button is handmade, there may be variations in what you see photographed – but the differences will be minimal.
