Many buttons are so evocative of an era - austere chunks of Bakelite, wartime chic, art- deco modernist shapes from the 30’s and giant plastic blobs of colour from the 1960’s & 70’s.
Yve (designing under the name BoBu or ‘Bodacious Buttons’) transforms these buttons into wearable and very desirable one-off pieces - marrying vintage and contemporary to create a delicious range of jewellery and accessories.
It’s unlikely there will ever be two pieces the same. Prices are easy on the purse, and reflect the age and design of the original buttons.
