This pair of handmade buttons measure 1 3/8 inches across and 1/8 inch thick - cut from a textured slab of white earthenware clay. The texture is the same as you would find in a vintage alligator handbag. The darker mottled green glaze treatment I chose for these buttons looks even more like they just crawled out of the swamp!
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.
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.
