Green Stitched Button Silver Earrings by Joanna Wakefield
These cute button earrings are handmade by giving the silver a hammered texture which is domed and drilled to give the appearance of a button. Sterling silver ear posts are then securely soldered onto the back before finishing the earrings with a high polish. These earrings are stitched with green thread but other colours are available.
The button is 1cm in diameter, so a lovely compact and wearable everyday size.
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.
