After a few requests, we have newly created these handmade, hand finished silver pewter buttons featuring a human skull. They were originally hand sculpted by my husband, Johann. These would be perfect for a Pirate, Gothic, Demon, Steam Punk, or similar garb or costume. When you really want to stand apart from the crowd of costumers using mass produced buttons, this is it. Very often it is hard to find antique buttons in the quantities you want, we can make as many of these as you need for your project. We only use lead-free silver pewter in our castings.
It measures approximately 7/16" wide by 1/2" tall or 11 mm wide by 12.5 mm tall. These are not a thin, cheap casting, these buttons are made to last :)
If you need a specific number of buttons to complete your project, convo me and I will make a special listing for you with the amount that you need.

What is Silver Pewter?
We have many inquiries as to what our silver pewter is. First of all, is that our metal does not come from China nor is it a cheap silver plating. Our Silver Pewter jewelry is made with the highest quality lead and antimony free alloyed mixture. It is made up of a proprietary combination of Tin, Bismuth, Silver, and Copper. Metallurgically, this alloy has the strongest physical properties of any lead-free pewter. There is a small percentage of silver that is added, that makes the finished product have a really nice shine and it also increases the hardness so it doesn't scratch or "ding" as easily. It will not rust, and doesn't bend or break easily. It will break if direct and deliberate force is applied to it, though, just like anything else I'd imagine. I have a piece that I still wear that was originally cast 25 years ago. I have worn my jewelry at night, in the shower, in the ocean, Michigan's Great Lakes and our backyard swimming pool with no issue :) Every now and then you'll want to take a soft cotton cloth and rub the face of your pendant, that will restore the shine. The metal will oxidize a bit over time, and develop a slightly darker patina. Mine didn't really do this until it was about 15 years old, though.
Thank you for visiting Center of the Circle, and have a very blessed day! :)
