Description

This brooch is based on the 400-year-old British technique known as a "Dorset Button," in which yarn is wrapped around a circle and then the piece is embellished. This is the "Wagon Wheel" style, with spokes at the center. You will find no other brooch like it! The circle shape is especially delightful.

The circumference is 2 1/2" and it weighs about one ounce. The base is a plastic ring and I have wrapped it in olive Nymo beading thread, then added a couple dozen beads of Chinese turquoise. I made the center spokes of turquoise Nymo thread and then added copper/iridescent seed beads. You can remove the clasp if you want to use it as a button.

It takes many hours to make one of these, but I love the results! Wear it on a sweater, scarf, or shawl -- or in your hair on on a purse. I have used my Dorset Buttons as one-of-a-kind accents for my handmade garments and some people have used them as pendants for their handmade jewelry.

I am now the proud owner of this highly skilful, interesting and attractive piece of weaving. Much impressed by Denise Kovnat's work using Randall Darwall's warp yarn. To be treasured - and worn!
