Cock of the Walk Necklace - Birds

The brilliantly-colored glass rooster button featured in this necklace was made today in the Czech Republic with century-old processes. We playfully combined it with a droll little Victorian steel cup button featuring a rooster head outlined with a piece of cut steel.

A cocky strutting rooster might seem an unlikely image for a button, however, roosters have long been symbols of awakening, especially religious awakening, with their assurance that light always follows darkness.

This necklace features a sliding clasp that enables you to adjust its length to suit any neckline. You can wear it as a choker, as a long pendant, or anywhere in between.

In this piece:

  • Large glass button with gilded rim and illustration of a rooster, handmade in the Czech Republic
  • Small antique brass and steel rooster head button, circa 1880-90
  • Large and small brass-plated pewter settings, made in the USA
  • Two styles of brass chain
  • Hand-wrapped silver-plated filigree beads
  • Antiqued brass chain adjusts via a sliding magnetic clasp from a 15″ choker to 32” long pendant
