I came across this Etsy seller, The Horse and Bird, and had to share. The owner and designer, Rachel Ingalls, uses silicone molds to fashion pendants based on vintage buttons. They are available in silver and copper and are very reasonably priced, ranging from the low $20s to the high $40s.
My biggest question is which one to get first. They are reminiscent of ancient Greek or Roman coins made into jewelry, but for a fraction of the price.
On her Etsy page she writes,
Horses have been a huge part of my life. I have trained and owned horses for two decades, and when I’m not creating my art, I relish the time spent with my wonderful Friesian Sport Horse, Cody. Riding him on a beautiful, warm day surrounded by the goings-on of nature–it doesn’t get any better.
My copper and silver vintage button replica line features horses, birds and other nature themes, but if there is something specific you’d like to see, please convo me and I will do my best to make it happen. I currently work in bronze, copper, fine silver, sterling silver and accent gold. Quality, comfort, beauty and durability are my priorities.
