What Can Be Made With Buttons?

There is a shop on etsy that creates awesome handmade buttons, each button is unique and made with love. Please check out buttonalia, there is a choice of red swirly buttons, sand and sea, fun little buttons to name a few

buttonalia says "I'm a New Zealand trained ceramicist with my specialty being sculpture, glazes and glaze techniques. I am now working from my small studio in Kent, England. Each button is hand crafted by me and many of the glazes are my own. Because these buttons have been glazed front and back and fired to a high temperature, they are non porous, durable and will never lose the brilliance of the colours. Do enjoy them, as I have in making them.

Here are some of buttonalias creations

Here are a selection of items made using these fun buttons. Buttons are not just for fastening your cardigan you know!
