Every piece of UnButtons jewelry is created from antique or vintage buttons that are from 70 to 160 years old. Every one is an original which I have only cleaned and polished a bit. I have spent over 20 years collecting buttons from all over the world, attending button collector events and networking with other button collectors. Of course I have learned a lot about buttons and I enthusiastically share this knowledge with customers at my shows.
The findings I use to create my bracelets are silver or gold plated over brass, some with an antiqued finish. Each bracelet comes with a security guard chain. Earring findings are also plated with either sterling or gold-filled earwires. Each pair of earrings comes with clear plastic "keepers" on the wires. But as my earwires are thicker than most they are more comfortable and more secure. Pendant mounting discs are also gold or silver plated with pewter bails and gold or silver plate over steel chains.
I use a very strong, long-lasting adhesive which works well for all the various types of button materials. Every piece is guaranteed against a lost button. I will replace or reglue it at no charge to my customer.
