Unique Buttony Treasures

Buttons have been both essential tools and collectible, revered possessions for centuries. So many of us remember being allowed to root through our grandmothers' button tins, and the special memories we attach to those little round jewels of treasure.

When I was a teenager I discovered the world of making miniatures for doll's houses from polymer clay, and it quickly became my particularly favourite material. Buttons hold a special place in my own heart, so two years ago I decided to combine polymer clay with my love of buttons to create special, one-off works of miniature, useful art. Each button is made by hand from polymer clay and then hand illustrated - no transfers or stencils are used, so every one is unique.

My buttons have travelled to new homes all over the globe, been featured in magazines, enhanced lovingly hand knitted items, lapels and even button wedding bouquets!

Imagine being able to wear your own personal work of art on a button wherever you go! I love seeing the wonderful garments and sewing projects my buttons adorn, and I've recently expanded into creating button jewellery and accessories too.

Thank you for calling in! If you would like to talk to me about a commission, do get in touch. You can read more about my adventures in creativity - and learn just who Miss Beatrix is - at

My buttons are made with care and are very hard wearing; if however you receive your order and aren't delighted then I am happy to offer a full refund, minus postage costs.

When buying ready-made stock from my shop I aim to have it hand wrapped and wending its way to you within 48 hours. For custom designs this will inevitably take longer; something I will discuss with you when we talk about your design.

Additional policies and FAQs
Each button is made and finished one at a time and by hand from polymer clay. My standards are high, but please recognise that small quirks in the surface of the buttons are part of their character and individuality. Each button is a one off and I hope you'll love wearing and using your unique and lovingly made buttons!

Buttons and washing:
I have put my buttons through a number of 'test spins' in the washing machine, and all survived with no damage. If you are going to use your button(s) on clothing I would advise that you a) turn the item of clothing inside out, and b) wash it inside a net or pillowcase. This should prevent the buttons from becoming knocked and chipped, as well as protecting their colours. If you are unsure you may wish to hand wash your item.

As with all small items, please exercise caution where buttons and children are concerned.
