Greetings and thank you for visiting Singing Blackbird Designs!

I make each piece of jewelry here in my home in lovely Portland, Oregon. I live on an acre right in the middle of the city and most of my pieces were made with the sound of red-winged blackbirds in my ears. I want you to love, love, love what you purchase from my shop as much as I love, love, love vintage and antique buttons! If you have a special request, please don't hesitate to ask.

I use a powerful epoxy to hold my pieces together. They have been dropped, grabbed by cute babies, pecked by chickens & even accidently worn in the shower without damage- though I wouldn't recommend it. : ) Buttons can look very delicate, but they were made to last and so was this epoxy. Glass buttons, however, should be treated with care and can chip or break if dropped, though it's unlikely. I wear a button necklace and pair of hairpins every day, and I've never had one break. Still, I will always let you know in the description if an item includes a glass button.

Additional policies and FAQs
Please know: these buttons are almost all USED. They are vintage or antique and have spent some of their lives attached to various garments, and some knocking around in jars and tins with other buttons. They are not necessarily meant to look new, though some do. The slight wear you may see on any given button is part of its charm, appeal, and style. However, I choose buttons carefully and nothing damaged , dirty, or terribly worn makes its way into my pieces. Buttons were made to last, and even buttons over 100 years old tend to be in absolutely beautiful condition. If you are unsure about a purchase, please don't hesitate to convo me and ask for extra photos- I want you to know what you are getting!

I can accomodate custom orders only loosely because each piece is original and crafted from buttons I may never hold in my hands again. If you have a color scheme you are looking for, or you see a sold item you particularly like, I can work with you! Please convo me with any questions.
