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.
Stocking up early for the Christmas rush (that really, truly wasn’t an intentional pun, but I think I’ll just go with it) I’ve made a new batch of one-of-a-kind stretchy button charm bracelets. Silver plated elastic bracelets, with a mix of small buttons in place of what would usually be silver charms.
My new premium button jewellery collection is now available. These button necklaces, bracelets and earrings are the first few in a series of one-of-a-kind pieces that I’ve been working on over the past few months. The button necklaces are different to most of my others in that they are made with thread rather than wire, and they are double-sided and reversible.
One of the most common problems with thread-based button jewellery is that the buttons sometimes turn over – it’s quite difficult to get them to lie flat during day to day wear, because even the slightest movement can dislodge them from lying in a smooth line around the neck. These new necklaces don’t have this problem, as a slightly rotated button will simply reveal the other side of the necklace with another button on it, rather than the back of the button. My new website shows a view of both sides of each necklace, so you can see in detail exactly how each piece will look.
