Coming Home - Filigree Brass and Czech Bird Button Glass Necklace - Katofmanycolors



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.

I can't take my eye off of the bird cab—fabulous! The green, pink and brass compliment each other perfect.

I LOVE this bird glass button! The method of how the button was crafted is amazing and really makes you appreciate its beauty even more. The necklace is amazing and once again has that KAT uniqueness.

I have been in love with the Czech Button Glass but when I saw this bird I became sooooo excited! The bird just seems to glow. Thank you all for your very appreciated comments. The designs I have seen so far are just beautiful. Everyone must have had some very good feelings working with pink!
