MY MOTHERS BUTTONS is handcrafted, one-of-a-kind jewelry created by Linda Wright and her daughter in their “button studio” in Edmonds, Washington, since 1992. These “heirloom-urban chic" pieces feature the finest antique buttons from the opulent era of the mid 1800s-1940s that are collected in France and all over Europe.
While treasure hunting for vintage buttons, Linda discovered glass-domed, bridle rosettes, which are a decoration for horse bridles that first became popular in the Victorian age of the late 1800s-early 1900s. Horse Bridle Rosettes are ultra-rare and incorporate colourful artwork that was popular for scrapbook die-cuts and calling cards during that time period, which Linda thought would be fantastic as statement-making, necklace pendants!… She’s totally right about that, don’t you agree?!
The rich gold reflections from the mirror underneath the sparkly die-cut paper, and juxtaposed with the distressed markings from prancing ponies in the past, turns this Horse Bridle Rosette Pendant into the epitome of rustic elegance.
• Bridle Rosettes were worn by actual horses a very long time ago, so each one shows markings of wear and tear, some more so than others, which only adds to the character of these unique pieces, and therefore sold in “as is” condition.
• Also, Horse Bridle Rosettes are sold as “pendants only”, but if you need a chain, Suzie Q Studio has them available in a choice of two finishes/colours, in nine different lengths, by clicking here>>> ANTIQUE SILVER CHAIN FOR PENDANTS or ANTIQUE BRONZE CHAIN FOR PENDANTS.
