Antique Bird Button Drop Earrings
Parrot, Swallow, and Snail Earrings - Birds

Parrot, Swallow, and Snail Earrings - Birds

The buttons featured in these earrings depict one of our favorite small bird designs. We love both their uncommonly fine detail, and their quirky subject matter. After all, what does a flying swallow have to do with an earth-bound slow-moving snail?

Century-old buttons tend to lose their mates, so finding matching pairs, like the ones used in these earrings is special.
