Author(s): Marrianne Mercer

Craft and Hobbies

Marrianne Mercer has found a huge variety of buttons, from wooden toggles to metal daisies, some vintage, some modern, some fun and some delicate and pretty. Her sources have included up-to-the-minute websites as well as family button boxes, and the jewellery she has produced is equally varied, from the strikingly modern Stacked Boho Necklace to the vintage Old World Charm, and from the stretchy Toggle Bracelet to the delicate Seaside Shell Earrings. Button Jewellery is all the rage and this book provides twenty projects including necklaces, charms, rings, bracelets, earrings and glasses strings, plus twenty variations.

Product Information

I was at quite a loss as to how to be inventive with buttons, but then the lovely people at Search Press sent me a book which offers some wonderfully creative solutions to a surfeit of buttons. Button Jewellery by Marrianne Mercer, in the Twenty to Make series, has some lovely ideas for simple to make button jewellery. I particularly like these bracelets which make use of the sort of metallic buttons which were originally spares from men's blazers and vintage suits, or mixed brightly coloured singles ... And these bag charms, which also make the most of those single metallic buttons. So try out some of the button jewellery ideas in this lovely little book.-littlecottagecomforts.blogspot.com
