Beautiful necklace & beautifully presented. It was a present & I really didn't want to give it away! The seller was very efficient in sending the necklace & replied immediately to ALL (!) of my queries. Will definitely buy from this seller again. Very happy customer! ☺️

Handmade button jewellery from Ireland
Ever since playing happily with the contents of Granny's button box as a little girl, I've loved and collected all kinds of buttons. Over ten years ago now, I figured it was time to share some of them by making them into pretty little pieces of jewellery, and in 2009 I set up this little etsy shop. What began as an experiment is growing and growing 5 years later.
Some of the buttons I use in my pieces may be new, but more of them have already had a previous life on a jacket or dress from many years ago, and many come from fruitful rummagings in the button box I eventually inherited. I have reused the buttons from Irish military uniforms, wedding gowns, workshirts from the 1940s, and many dresses worn to dances in the 1960s and 1970s. Pretty cool!
In my other life, I teach art, eat cake, and dance swing.

In my day job, I teach art to teenagers, which is great fun and ever changing! I collect buttons and ideas, so this is my way of sharing both with you. Magpie and Button started in 2009 and has been growing ever since. Thanks for stopping by! x Beth
All of the jewellery and any other items you'll find here are handmade by me in my little spare room studio. The vast majority of my pieces are one of a kind! Occasionally I will repeat a favourite piece at a customer's request, or perhaps two items/pairs of earrings may have subtle differences in colour or materials. All pieces are made in Ireland, though some interesting beads and buttons have come from other places.
I love to do custom orders, so please don't hesitate to ask if you have any requests!
