Vintage buttons, beads, crystals, fabrics, and all things ephemera are key to my designs. The feminine, romantic qualities of the Victorian, Shabby Chic, Steampunk, Lolita, Gypsy, Mori Girl, and Boho genres are my main source of inspiration, but I sometimes enjoy working with modern components as well.
Suffice it to say that I'm one of a growing group of button lovers. And no wonder...buttons are little works of art! As a teacher traveling throughout Europe for many years, I came across many exquisite buttons to add to my collection. My designing days began after my return stateside, when I made a button bracelet for myself. I was completely taken off guard by the number of compliments and requests for something similar. All it takes is one gorgeous button to inspire me, and I have plenty of inspiration on hand!
