Fiona Carson's Profile

About

My name is Fiona Carson. I live in sunny Perth, Western Australia with my husband Matthew and our two children. I am a stay at home mum of Hayley (9) and James (5). In my rare "spare" time I love to make Kanzashi flowers. I make pendants, necklaces, brooches, earrings and hair accessories. While making Kanzashi flowers with button centres I discovered the beauty of vintage glass buttons.

I love teaming up these beautiful buttons with the vibrant silk colours of my Kanzashi flowers. Many of my buttons were made in Germany in the 40's and 50's, some in Czechoslovakia more recently, and some even date back to Victorian times.

My love of these buttons has also led to the creation of glass button bracelets. These buttons are too beautiful to be sitting in a button jar or in a collection drawer! I want them to be seen, worn and enjoyed.
