Coming Home - Filigree Brass and Czech Bird Button Glass Necklace

The focal on this beautiful necklace is a Czech, fired crystal Bird Art Glass button. I just fell in love with it! It was wrapped in filigree and then set in a pronged setting. Then, a lacy border of Swarovski light pink crystal glass beads with an aurora borealis finish was added. This particular button is back after 120 years. The button was made from a 19th century, old mold. It was hand crafted in the Czech Republic and was hand pressed and hand painted using original Czech methods that haven't changed in over two hundred years. It was finished with a filigree repousse clasp.
