Amelia in Ivy Earrings
Elegant and understated, these pearl earrings are the perfect complement to your favorite jeans and blouse. They show off two hand-carved pearl buttons made from mussel shells harvested from the mississippi river by the lady washington pearl button company. When the button company closed its doors in 1964, the great-grandson of the original owner, decided to sell the remaining stock and we bought it all. Grandmother's buttons hand-dyed the vintage pearl buttons in small batches on a stovetop in our st. Francisville, louisiana design studio. In this piece: Two lady washington vintage mother-of-pearl buttons . Small brass flower stampings made today in the USA in vintage dies. Nickel-free and lead-free brass kidney wire closures.
