Designer and Artist
All of my jewelry is handcrafted. I use antique and vintage buttons made of glass, metal and celluloid. Most of the buttons range from the late 1800's to the 1950's. The buttons are rich in history and are tiny works of art. The buttons are carefully chosen for color, texture, size, shape and form. I use semi precious stones, sterling silver, gold filled, and plated components in my work. They are then artfully blended to create a one of a kind keepsake item. Because these are antique buttons I am rarely able to duplicate a piece.
I recently added a line of bottle glass jewelry. The glass comes from wine and spirit bottles that has been cut and kiln fired. Some of the colorful bottle glass rings are combined in the button jewelry designs.
I have a facebook site: The Buttons Stop Here, and I do post many new designs on a regular basis. Usually before a upcoming art fair. Please visit and "like" my page to see updated designs and upcoming event information. If you see a item on my page that you are interested in please message me for details.
Thank you for visiting my site and hope to see you at a Art event.
