This pair of handmade buttons measures 1 3/8 inches in length, and 1 inch across. I used one of my many texturing 'tools' (or, toys, as one friend puts it...) to add the texture to a slab of clay and the results are what you see here. They've been glazed with a mossy green glaze.
The perfect size for a hand knitted or crocheted scarf or neck warmer, they would also be perfect as an accent on a felted bag or purse - or even an evening bag made of that old, rich fabric.
Although the buttons are washable, it’s best if you either hand wash the garment or turn it inside out and hang or block it to dry.
Most of my buttons are made from textured slabs, but occasionally will use molds I've made just for this purpose.
