Button and Swirl Jewellery


I have happy memories of riffling through my grandfather's old tin box full of buttons as a child. I remember spreading the buttons on his dining room table, sorting them into colours and shapes and making fun things out of them. Even now I love nothing more than settling down with boxes of buttons and sorting them to make into jewellery for different moods. I especially love the vintage mother of pearl with their simple, classic beauty and the sense they all have their own story to tell! I live near Stroud, in Gloucestershire with my husband and two children and have been making button jewellery since 2014.
