Working on foxes & music earrings today! This is the end of my fox fabric, sadly. 3 pair left until they're gone forever. Or maybe 2 pair because I am probably going to keep a pair for myself laughing #itsgoodtobetheboss
All the pretty colors! I haven't quite gotten them all listed yet, but am happy to fill orders of these colors through the pink earring Etsy listing!


Playful Nostalgia

There is something incredible that happens at craft markets. People of almost any age will come up to my display and say, "oh look! LEGO®!" and will want to share that joy with a friend. When many women see my vintage button creations, they invariably say something like, "oh my goodness, I used to play with my grandmother's buttons!" They both embody a common experience of childhood, it seems. I am trying to capture that connection--to past generations, to our dearest memories, and to each other. To give other people a way to experience it any time through jewelry, fridge magnets, office supplies, and more. It is so gratifying for me to be able to capture that for my customers. ​
Plus, it's just plain fun.
Hi there! My name is Lynn Esteban. I'm the owner and doer-of-all-things at Brick & Button. I am a joyful, quirky, playful person. But you could probably guess that from the fact that I built a business around LEGO® earrings!
More than anything, I want to bring that sense of joy and lightheartedness to the people I meet and interact with every day. It is a great pleasure to make every purchase into a gift! After all, I am truly grateful for my customers, and I want to pass along those positive feelings too.
Why Brick & Button?
What on Earth do buttons and LEGO® have in common? I get that a lot. The short answer is that I love them both! The long answer has to do with nostalgia. They both remind me of my childhood playing with my Nana's tin full of buttons, or digging for just the right LEGO® piece. But even deeper, the connection people feel when they recognize someone who shares their affection for these little pieces of history.
Custom Paintings
Before my illustrious career as the owner of Brick & Button, I was an oil painter for a good long while. Nowadays, I put those creative talents to work not only in coordinating buttons in beautiful color combinations, but also in creating custom portraits of couples, individuals, and families as LEGO® minifigures. They're so much fun to make, and they're a fantastic gift for kids and adults who love all-things LEGO®!
​But Is It Legal?
Yes. I promise. LEGO® company is really great about allowing people to use their toys for commercial purposes, as long as I don't pretend they endorse me, and I don't try to pass off my work as theirs.
They also ask that I put this on every page where I'm selling:
"LEGO® is a trademark of the LEGO Group of companies which does not sponsor, authorize or endorse this site."
