Vintage Navajo Lucille Platero Sterling Silver, Mixed Metals, Turquoise Button Covers Set of 5 #c807
Here's a fabulous set of mixed metal button covers by Navajo silversmith Lucille Platero!

Lucille Platero is a New Mexican silversmith who has been active since the 1990s and is known for her beautiful silver stamp work. This fabulous Platero set includes five button covers. The pieces are constructed of sterling silver, brass and turquoise. Each of the button covers is round and domed in shape with a roughly textured golden brass finish and a bezel-set, blue turquoise cabochon. Cutout stamped sterling silver shapes have been applied to the surfaces of each cover, each one having a unique design and shape. The button covers snap open on the backs so they can be placed around a button, and snap securely to stay in place. They are the perfect Southwestern accessory!

Each button cover measures about 1 1/16 inches in diameter and is signed "LP" for Lucille Platero on the inside. The combined weight of the set is 50.9 grams. The silver acid tested as sterling.

This is a unique set that will add a colorful pop to any blouse! The button covers would make a fine addition to a Navajo silver jewelry collection and a great gift. The button covers are in very good vintage condition. They are bright and shiny and snap shut securely. The insides of the covers do exhibit some patina, but this is not seen when they are worn and doesn't detract at all. There is a small crack across the applied silver on one button cover (photo #10). It is secure and not really noticeable and I didn't really notice it until I saw it in my macro photos. This beautiful set is ready to be worn or gifted!
