An ephemeral glass butterfly button dangles at the end of this necklace ready to launch into flight. Luckily it's anchored by a one-of-a-kind antique button linked and a vintage tourmaline mirror opal glass doublet.

The butterflies were hand-pressed in antique molds by one of the few remaining Czech glass button artisans still using centuries-old manufacturing processes.

Every antique button is a one and only, chosen just for you, and so will not be identical to the image.

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 (from top to bottom):

  • Small antique brass button, circa 1880-1900
  • Vintage German doublet in tourmaline goldstone mirror opal glass
  • Hand-pressed glass butterfly button, made today in the Czech Republic in antique molds using centuries-old processes
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Chain adjusts via a sliding magnetic clasp from a 15" choker to a 32" long pendant
