jennybuttons' Shop Announcement

****IMPORTANT NOTICE****** I WILL BE GONE FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST. ANY ITEMS ORDERED WILL BE SHIPPED MID-SEPTMEMBER OR LATER. I WILL CONTACT YOU WITH YOUR SHIP DATE WITHIN 24 HOURS (USUALLY MUCH SOONER!) WHEN YOU ORDER, AND YOU CAN DECIDE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO WAIT OR CANCEL YOUR ORDER. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!****

JENNYBUTTONS is where you will find handcrafted custom jewelry and handmade buttons and shawl pins made from silver and bronze. In addition, I am able to create a custom design for you of your family crest, wedding logo, corporate design, or just your fancy to use in in cufflinks, buttons, pins, earrings or lapel pins.

I work in ancient metals using a new technology - precious metal clay, which consists of microscopic metal particles held together with an organic binder. It can be formed as any clay can..then when kiln fired, at temperatures up to 1700 degrees Farenheit, the binders burn away and the metal particles fuse, resulting in beautiful objects of solid silver and bronze.

ABOUT 'QUANTITIES' AND 'IN STOCK'

Etsy now has a 'Quantity" feature, which is great because you can order however many buttons or pins you need without having to convo me. They also have added an 'In Stock' feature, which may confuse the issue a bit. If I mark the buttons as 'not in stock', you wouldn't be able to order the quantity you need. I will get back to you within 24 hours with a convo telling you production time if the buttons you ordered are not already made. Thank you for your understanding of my workaround for this Etsy feature.

Some buttons won't have this quantity feature activated.. Convo me if you are interested in multiples. Some might require supplies like dichroic glass or such that I would need to get in, (and would add to the cost), so best we discuss it first.


I'M NOW AN ONLINE METAL CLAY INSTRUCTOR!
I am now an instructor on Craftsy.com! Craftsy asked me to come to Denver to shoot a series of lessons on introductory silver metal clay techniques, and so I did!

Craftsy.com is a website where you can take in depth classes to learn 'how-to'. They have classes in jewelry making, sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting, cooking and woodworking, and even more. You sign up for a class, and have infinite access - there is no time limitation. You have the ability to ask your instructor questions which he or she will check back and answer, and students can join in the conversation too. You also have a place to post pictures of your projects - because sharing what you've done is the most fun of all, right?

Check it out, and get started on making some metal clay magic of your own!

MOST OF MY BUTTONS HAVE BEEN FOUND TO BE MACHINE WASHABLE AND DRY CLEANABLE!
I've sent a bunch through the wringer, literally...(actually delicate cycle on cold, please, and a decent dry cleaning establishment) Silver came through fine, bronze was beautiful, even the patinated buttons didn't lose their finish in either case. Please do use your common sense though...physically delicate buttons, buttons with enamel or glass insets will be especially vulnerable whether machine made or man made. Please contact me with any questions about a particular buttons and its wash-worthiness. Thanks!!
