Wearable Photographs July 05 2013, 0 Comments

 

Every thought about wearing photographs of people you love or like the look of? Almost as soon as photography was invented people made jewelry with their personal photos. From Victorian mourning brooches, rings and cufflinks to buttons promoting political candidates, photo jewelry came in all sizes and shapes. Especially popular in the 1920s and 30s was the pinback photo button. From the Project B rare originals collection is this hand colored photograph of a young girl in the 1920s that was made into a photo button. It measures 1 3/4 x 1", has a pin on the back and is especially charming (we love her glasses!). How would you wear your photographs?!
