Announcement   Welcome to my world of French buttons, decorative textiles and hand-picked treasures from flea markets and fairs of southern France.

All my pieces are handmade using a medley of vintage buttons, necklaces, brooches, earrings, and whatever else I happen to stumble upon.

The Krishenka collection is designed and made by me in my very often sunny studio. The real buzz for me comes from creating an item with the perfect balance between colour, texture and style. My buttons and materials dictate what they want to become - I just bow to their judgement!

This shopping bag is so lovely I really don't want to use it! The finishing is impeccable. Always fantastic quality items from Krishenkas treasures. It is never difficult to find an inexpensive gem, perfect for present ideas for that difficult person who has everything! (except a Krishenkas Treasure) Well worth a look !!

A simple understated piece that is very useful for the blouses that are just too 'open' for me, decorative but not ostententatious. Another treasure from Krishenka, easy to find many beautiful things - but so difficult to choose xx

Practical little item. Keeps our dining room neater while I'm sewing! It's well made and quite attractive. Glad she had different styles so I could get one that blends with my other sewing accessories.

About

How It Came to Pass

For me my love of buttons started when I was about 5, every week my mum took me to a second hand shop where I was left to amuse myself whilst she and her friend would sit and talk rubbish and forever, but that was just fine by me. The shop was stacked floor to ceiling with almost everything you can imagine. Rummaging around I found several boxes of buttons and sat very happily sorting them all out and each week I was allowed to take home a good handful. Using thread to make a loop and stitching it through the button gave me my first wearable ring, with which I wore till the thread broke. This weekly trip lasted several years and by then I had amassed quite a collection of what I referred to as my bits and bobs! Does anyone remember a comic called “Bunty”. Each week on the back page you got a paper Bunty doll along with the outfit of the week that you could cut out. My dad made me several flat wooden dolls as I got fed up with the paper flapping about and that’s when I started making her outfits from my boxes of bits and bobs and I guess Bunty was my introduction to the world of crafting.
Somehow 25 years passed and although I still occasionally bought any buttons that took my fancy I never got round to doing anything more than just look at them now and then. A few years ago I bought a few ring bases and made a some for fun, and then you know the rest of the story, starts with in my case my daughter wanting one and then another friend and then the why don’t you sell on line. Well I did just that in 2008 and the day I stop enjoying doing what I do is the day that I will stop.

My inspiration to create bracelets and rings can arrive at any time, some come from my garden, could be on a walk, it can happen at any given time of the year and the colours and shape just seems to pop in my head. I love giving buttons a new lease of life and sending them off to their new homes. Unfortunatly some days nothing happens at all and that's ok too, it means I get some other jobs done.

Paypal is probably the best as I live in France. I would like payment to made no more than 5 days from purchase date if possible, all I ask is that you speak to me if there is a problem.
Shipping
I ship normally within 2 days off receiving payment. If for some horrid reason that your item is lost or damaged in the post, rare but it can happen, although it may be almost impossible most of the time to replace exact item I will endeavour to resolve the issue with you.

If you are unhappy with your item I will either refund you in full or exchange, all I ask is that said item be returned to me in the same condition as it was received.

Additional policies and FAQs
I will be very happy to discuss with you custom orders. I have a very very large supply (and it keeps growing) of vintage buttons, linens and lace and they all need some loving.
