If you’re feeling thirsty for buttons – then the stunning work by Jen at Quench Metal Works will definitely quench that thirst. Jen creates the most beautiful jewellery using sterling silver and vintage mother-of-pearl buttons.

Jen has said of her work: “This collection reflects a renewed interest in my family’s needlecraft traditions. Incorporated into some pieces are vintage and antique mother-of-pearl or shell buttons. I consider each button as a lovely gem worth pairing with sterling silver and gold. These buttons come from a stock pile amassed by several generations of Maine seamstresses in my family. I like to think that each button has a story to tell of its own. “

I love how the modern settings, which have been oxidised and hand rubbed, work with the antique buttons – they sit so comfortably together to achieve a lasting heirloom piece.
