    These jewelry are made of a set of 3 antique buttons. The nice thing is that I have kept the backs of the used enameled buttons. So, the jewelry, which are set in sterling silver, are very easy to bring back to their original state namely; antique buttons. (see photo 3).
    These enameled buttons are images of flowers in blue and white on a white background. They remined me of the famous Dutch porcelain; the so-called Delft blue don't you agree?

      agreed on the delft and aren't you the clever one in design -- great idea

      Epson233, thanks for your compliment. And yes we (the Dutch) are the designers of Delfts blauw (blue) if that's what you mean. Sometimes I have some difficulties in understanding because of English is not my native language as you will understand. So, if I misunderstood what you meant, please explane.

      I've seen jewelry made out of old pieces of Delft before, like the original item was broken and the pieces were shaped set into jewelry or buttons like you have. Those actually are real Delft right?
    6. Agram.m Agram.m, 8 years ago
      They looks like Delft because of the colors, but Delft is porcelain of course and these buttons are enameled. But thanks for your interest and I wish you and your family a very good and healthy new year!

      Ahhhh, I see, I didn't notice that it was enamel! I've seen brooches made out of broken pieces of old delft, I thought thats what these were

      Indeed, there are a lot of old Delft jewelry . It' s called Delft because this is the name of the city In The Netherlands where it is produced. Thanks for your interest Stillwater.
