This stunning pair of stud button styling snaps was inspired by the Timbrel vaulted ceiling of the historic Castelo de S, Jorge in Lisbon, Portugal. In the lower level of the castle, the ceiling consisted of low intersecting arches made of brick, which I had photographed from different angles as I was taken with the varying textures of the converging lines of brick.

I shared those photographs with my creative partner in Bali and he developed several designs that I think are absolutely knockout.  Interestingly, the texture of the brick forms evokes the texture of stitches in a piece of knitting. We hollowed out the back to make the pieces more light-weight. The inversion of the texture on the back just adds to the beauty of these exceptional styling tools.

They are heavier than their smaller counterparts but when they are styled on fingering fabric, they are well-supported by the backing disks and don't give the impression that they are too heavy.

These components are not suitable for the most gossamer fabrics unless used as a shawl cuff.
