Hi! This site is an archive of my old craft blog. You can now find my new writing, and my two new shops, in their new homes: Patchwork Jackdaw for one-off, intricate jewellery pieces in muted colours, and Florence Loves Fridays for bold, chunky, quirky jewellery.
More custom button necklaces! I’ve made two different variations on my chunky cord button necklaces, which are normally a medium length (around 46 – 56cm). This week, one person wanted extra long necklaces at 75cm, and someone else (separately) wanted a short choker at 37cm.
If you’re looking for a custom button necklace like these – or one that’s a different length – you can get in touch here.
I’ve added a new feature to my button jewellery site – my wire button necklaces, bracelets and jewellery sets are now available with customisable colours which you can pick out from my colour palette.
First you can select your type of jewellery – you can get just a necklace, just a bracelet, or various different jewellery sets (I’ll be adding a few more variations soon). Then you can pick up to five different colours from drop-down menus, and even select your wire colour if you want to – or you can leave this up to me.
If you want to discuss the colours in more detail, want more than five colours or a different bracelet or necklace length, I can do that too – just send me an email and I can make further customisations too.
The other week I was out for some food with friends, and one of them asked me to make her a necklace a bit like the one I was wearing. I don’t make many necklaces like this one, because they take much longer to make than my other jewellery as they’re a bit more complex and fiddly. But I do like making these occasionally, and would like to develop a range of them at some point. They’re made on thread rather than wire, and they’re reversible as they have extra buttons on the back, so if you’re feeling particularly active you don’t need to worry about your necklace ending up backwards – there is no backwards.
My friend Mel said she wears mostly blue and green, so the necklace is mixture of vintage buttons in different blues, greens and neutrals. It’s finished with sterling silver findings. The larger buttons on this one are all around 16mm across, and the total length is just under 50cm. If you’re interested in commissioning a necklace a bit like this (whatever colour scheme and length you fancy), prices start at £35 – get in touch and I’ll see what I can do…
