Mother of pearl vintage button silver plated stud earrings.

The delicate mother of pearl vintage buttons in these earrings, come from my collection and I believe that they’re approximately 40s-50s. These buttons are made from natural shell, so have a lovely shimmer and speckled coral pattern backs. They’re in excellent condition, with no visible marks.

I have wonderful memories of playing with my Nana’s button tin and as an adult; I’ve built on her collection. So, I loved designing these vintage inspired earrings, fixed on silver plated stud blanks with a butterfly back.

All silver plated materials are lead and nickel free.

These boho style earrings arrive beautifully gift wrapped in vintage style packaging; with handmade ‘Paprika Jewellery’ recycled card backs and pillow box. This would make a perfect piece of jewellery for a beach wedding and a lovely bridesmaid gift.
This item has FREE UK delivery.

This is ready to post in 3-5 days. I’ll inform you when it’s been dispatched.
*Custom orders are welcome.
MEASUREMENTS – vintage buttons about 10mm in diameter
– silver plated stud earring base with a 8mm pad and 5mm butterfly stoppers.
Please see photo with 10p piece for a sense of proportion

Hi, I'm Laura and I'm married to Joel, with two sons; Zeke and Luca. I'm disabled due to a number of chronic illnesses which leave me bed bound, due to severe pain. In 2014 I was diagnosed with the rare brain condition-Intracranial Hypertension (IIH). I have restricted blood vessels which means that blood can't drain properly, causing raised pressure inside my skull. This pressure mimics a brain tumour, causing debilitating symptoms and leaving me mainly bedbound. I've had a constant, severe headache for over 4 years, I fall or pass out often and have many other life-limiting symptoms. My everyday pain is often worse than that associated with childbirth. I'm having ongoing brain and skull surgery to improve my symptoms, but my prognosis is unknown. Before this diagnosis, Joel bought me silver smithing classes. I grabbed the opportunity and started to make myself the jewellery I'd always wanted. I found I had an unexpected eye for design, but had to stop using the workshop tools and machines when I fell ill in 2014. After months of constant pain, I decided to make jewellery at home as a distraction. I taught myself new techniques, that built on what I already knew. Seeing my creations bring joy to others, gave me back a sense of purpose, after losing the teaching career I'd loved. My situation affected my mental health and I began writing to process my feelings. I rediscovered my love of poetry and started making poetry keepsakes, as well as jewellery storage and greetings cards. I appreciate you taking the time to read my story and visit my store. I'm passionate about celebrating individuality in my original designs; be it a gift or a treat for yourself. Whether you want a piece that stands out from the crowd or subtly shows what makes you, you; I'll always be on hand to ensure you feel amazing. Everything I make is one of a kind and where I do offer multiples, each piece is exclusively designed for you. My husband helps me with photography and other things I struggle with. My family's support means that I can spend my energy on creating beautiful designs and ensure that my customer service stays rated 5 stars.
