  • Patterned Shell Button

    £0.50£2.00

    These beautiful Paua Shell buttons are dyed and then the pattern is made using a laser! Super clever.

    We only have small stocks of these very special buttons. We don’t have every colour in every size anymore, these lovely buttons have been popular in the shop.

    They are machine washable, as long as you protect the button from hitting the drum.

  • Mother of Pearl Back to Back Button Necklace

    £18.50

    These beautiful vintage 18″  Mother of Pearl necklaces are all handmade right here in Exeter. The buttons may differ slightly from the photo, but never by much. The clasp is all sterling silver and the  nylon thread is super strong. I am happy to include a mending guarantee on this piece too, just bring it into the shop or post it to me and I’ll mend it for free for you, forever.

    I think this necklace is best at 18 inches, but if you would like it longer or shorter, let me know in the notes and I’m happy to make you a bespoke necklace. If you want it much longer, I might have to add a small extra cost though.

    The buttons were sold to us by a elderly gent who was clearing out his loft after his seamstress wife has passed away.  He just kept on appearing with more buttons, and a twinkle in his eye, saying ‘I had no idea she had so many, she must have sneaked them in the house!’

    This lady had great taste, the quality of the buttons is phenomenal, and I have enough to make many necklaces!

     

     

  • Brown Paua Shell Button Necklace

    £15.00

    These beautiful Copper Brown buttons make a visually stunning necklace. I love making jewellery out of buttons, this is just the most tactile piece to wear. This necklace is hand-made by Mattie.

    It fits over your head with no metal clasp needed and is 70cm/28″ long over all, made from thin and super strong thread. If it ever snaps, bring it back into the shop and I’ll mend it for you, forever.

    If you would like the necklace a different length, let me know and I’ll make one up especially for you. If it’s massively longer, I may have to add an extra cost for the extra materials and time taken. I’ll let you know this before I started creating!

  • 144 Mother of Pearl Buttons

    £10.00

    These beautiful vintage buttons have real character, and are a real bargain! They were bought by our button supplier from a vintage button seller that was retiring, and we’d love to get them a new lease of life with you!

    They aren’t all absolutely perfect, in that they are made from a natural material but they are a set. We don’t have huge quantities of these, and they’re a total end of line!

    With 144 buttons per sheets, they work out at just 6.9p each.

    The 2 hole buttons are 11mm across and the 4 hole buttons are 10mm across.

  • Mother of Pearl 2 hole Button

    £0.30£0.80

    These are really beautifully made, with that stunning golden cream tinge that mother of pearl buttons can have.

    I want to make them into jewellery so I can wear them all the time, I love their classic elegance.

    They are 2mm thick, so have a great chunk to them too.

  • White Shell Shanked Button

    £0.30£0.40

    These are really pretty little gold shanked white shell buttons. They are 4mm thick which gives them a really nice weight and feel.

  • Shell Shanked Button

    £0.50£0.70

    Beautiful delicate shell buttons are a gem. These are made from natural paua shell, so every button has it’s own character.

    A light gold metal pin through the middle creates the shank for sewing your button.

  • Mother Of Pearl 4 hole Button

    £0.50

    I am quietly obsessed with these buttons, in a sort of Coco Chanel ‘I want to drape myself in them’ fashion.

    They have the loveliest chunk to them without being chunky, just substantial and well made and lasting.

    They also have a great size hole so you can use them with chunky wool without having to drag it through the hole! They are 19mm across and 3mm thick at their widest point, and each hole is 3mm, and come in a delightful cream or white.
