I am a studio artist from Colorado, and my passion is miniature art. I have been a seamstress for many years, but until I connected with the Lark But’ning Club, it had never occurred to me to create buttons for anything, let alone my own garments and projects. That has seriously changed.
Being obsessive-compulsive, I don’t do anything in moderation, so I don’t collect ANYTHING, because I would be considered a hoarder and have no place to actually live. But creating buttons and then selling them provides me the opportunity to learn about buttons and still have a home with space.
The buttons on this site are samples of some of the materials, techniques and processes I use to create them. I have the attention span of a gnat, (I get bored easily), so I merrily skip from paper to cloth to wood to acrylic to leather – well, you get the picture. I laser engrave, embroider, do inlays and insets, working on Death Heads…
Yes, I will sell these buttons, or I can create one ‘specially for you. If you want a log cabin on leather and your buddy wants one on vegetable ivory, I can do both. I can work on almost any material. The only thing I don’t do is tat, so Challenge Me! Stump me if you can!
P.S. I also can make cuff links, buckles, and Dorsetts…and I’m probably forgetting other stuff.
