Announcement   Specializing in Artfully Upcycled Treasures - Featuring Vintage Button Jewelry - Wearable History


As a self taught jewelry designer I take inspiration in vintage and antique components and repurposing them in a new and reimagined way. I currently am working with Antique and Vintage buttons. These tiny pieces of "art" lend themselves perfectly to be made into jewelry. I spend a great deal of time carefully sourcing buttons from all over the world. Glass buttons from the Czech Republic turn into dazzling glass art jewelry. Victorian Buttons (circa 1880-1900) also referred to as picture buttons are simply amazing in detail and each tell a story. The Art Nouveau time period (circa 1890-1910) with its curved lines form the most beautiful pieces and are a favorite of mine to work with. Art Deco Buttons (1920-1930's) are always a popular choice for clients as its a time period that is known for its beautiful style and imagery.

As I work on each piece my thoughts turn to the life that button has led. What clothes did it adorn? Who wore it? What part of the world did it come from? What history did it unknowingly observe? These little valuable treasures are rare and special and I am privileged to be able to take them to the next level and turn them into a piece of "wearable history".

I have a very loyal following who collect my pieces and follow me around each year to over 60 juried Art and Craft Shows. I strive to create new designs each season to keep things fresh and exciting.

About

Making "Wearable History" with Vintage and Antique Buttons.

As a self taught jewelry designer I take inspiration in using vintage and antique components and repurposing them in a new and reimagined way. I am currently working with Antique and Vintage buttons.

These tiny pieces of "art" lend themselves perfectly to be made into jewelry. I spend a great deal of time carefully sourcing buttons from all over the world.

Modern and Vintage Glass buttons from the Czech Republic turn into dazzling glass art jewelry. Victorian Buttons (circa 1880-1900) also referred to as picture buttons are simply amazing in detail and each tell a story. The Art Nouveau time period (circa 1890-1910) with its curved lines form the most beautiful pieces and are a favorite of mine to work with. Art Deco Buttons (1920-1930's) are always a popular choice for clients as its a time period that is known for its beautiful geometric shapes and strong colors.

As I work on each piece my thoughts turn to the life that button has led. What clothing did it adorn? Who wore it? What part of the world did it come from? What history did it unknowingly observe? These little valuable treasures are rare and special and I am privileged to be able to take them to the next level and turn them into a piece of "wearable history".


I am very thankful to have a loyal following who collect my pieces and follow me around each year to over 80 Juried Art and Craft Shows. I strive to create new designs each season to keep things fresh and exciting.
