Blue Stitched Button Silver Necklace by Joanna Wakefield
Handmade 12mm silver button necklace with a hammered effect to give it texture. The button has a slightly dome to it and has 4 drilled holes to give the appearance of a button. It has then been stitched with a blue thread and attached to a loose sterling silver trace chain. Please note that the blue thread is slightly darker than in the image.
Joanna Wakefield is a jewellery designer-maker working from her studio in York.
A huge part of her jewellery designs are influenced by textiles and haberdashery which stemmed from a fascination that grew from admiring her Grandma’s talents along with fond memories of sorting through her button stash.
Amongst her collection, you will find handmade silver cotton reels (hallmarked in such a way as to reflect the labelling found on vintage bobbins) and thimbles cast from vintage finds.
