About

The Badger loves making badges. It is the Badger's purpose in life to make badges that appeal to you. The Badger likes to draw as much as possible, but drawing is hard with long claws, so sometimes the badger uses images from old books, (vintage children's books are a favourite!) sheet music and other various sources to come up with a really groovy badge for you to wear.

Ok, so I'm not really a badger...well, at least not the furry kind. I'm Sarah Beck, and I live on Cape Breton Island, in Nova Scotia, Canada. I make my living as a potter and button maker and have a studio and shop that I open to tourists from May to October.

If you'd like to see my pottery you can go to www.etsy.com/shop/wildfirepotter and have a peep.

I also sell used books and I decided to add buttons to my products. I'm really having a great time designing them. I have the most fun using my own artwork to create a button graphic, but since I also have a passion for old books I love using those too. The other main passion in my life (ok, beside my husband and my dog Lola, best in the world) is playing my fiddle. Cape Breton is well-known for its unique style of fiddling and it has a really vibrant traditional music culture which I love being a part of. I also love playing the ukulele. I have a passion for old, dance hall style music and also music that was popular during the wartime eras. It suits the uke so well!

Thanks for visiting and enjoy browsing my shop,
