Beauclaire Presents …

The Precious Metal Look.

I can’t see that these buckles have a “precious metal look”, but that’s marketing for you. These are a good example of how the large (12 x 18.2 cm) cards left retailers with the options of either cutting up the cards as individual buckles were purchased, or else prising them off the card, leaving it looking tatty. No wonder that during the 1950s smaller cards of individual buckles were adopted, as well as smaller cards with a lesser number buttons. Much easier for the retailers.

Now some crafty ideas for making your own earrings!
