Grandmother's Buttons Marilla Necklace [PRE-ORDER] (Buy 2 Get 1 Free Mix & Match)

$81.00

MADE-TO-ORDER, PRE-ORDER. IF IN STOCK, IT WILL SHIP OUT PROMPTLY, BUT IF NOT, WE WILL SHIP ONCE IT'S MADE IN AN ESTIMATED TWO WEEKS.

The green opal glass cabochon centering this necklace reminds us of a sunlight-soaked green sea, hence the name Marilla, which means shining sea. 

It’s a stunning example of the midcentury Czech glass artisan’s talents.  Opal glass is created by hand mixing and molding multiple glass colors with tiny pieces of goldstone glass. 

The cabochon hangs from an antique and one-of-a-kind Victorian-era chased or hammered brass button. Metalworkers forged the lovely designs on these buttons by ‘hammering’ on their backside to create a low relief design or ‘chasing’ on the front side to sink the metal. 

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

In this piece:

  • Hammered or chased brass antique button, circa 1870-1880
  • Green opal lampworked glass cabochon made in midcentury Czechoslovakia
  • Large & small brass-plated pewter settings cast today in the USA
  • Antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 18” with a 4” extender
