time to button up!
There are some very lovely people in the world. And two of them crossed my path recently, generously giving me their vintage button collections which they felt I could utilise.
These buttons have a magical quality to them. Not only are they beautifully made from a range of materials - glass, metal, ceramics - (less of the modern day plastic), each one also comes with its own history of a garment which it has previously graced.
My role will be to upcycle these buttons so that they can add a touch of vintage character to another item handcrafted by Mosaic Tree.
