Hi! This site is an archive of my old craft blog. You can now find my new writing, and my two new shops, in their new homes: Patchwork Jackdaw for one-off, intricate jewellery pieces in muted colours, and Florence Loves Fridays for bold, chunky, quirky jewellery.
Stocking up early for the Christmas rush (that really, truly wasn’t an intentional pun, but I think I’ll just go with it) I’ve made a new batch of one-of-a-kind stretchy button charm bracelets.

The button jewellery site has had a redesign – and as well as this there are new products, and a whole load of items at reduced prices in the sale section.
New in the accessories section are some button purses, made by Sharon of Bolsita Bags (she has a shop just up the road from where I live). Each one is a unique, one-off handmade item, crafted from a patchwork of fabric offcuts and decorated with vintage buttons.
