5.0 out of 5 stars button jewellery 9 Mar 2011
By Hazel Vicary VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my daughter who was looking for a way to use her enormous stash of buttons. Well, this book inspired her to make some wonderful pieces BUT, the stash of buttons, instead of decreasing, has increased 4fold. It is a very clear concise book, the instructions are very clear and precise and the amounts of wire etc to be used are, unusually in my experience, pretty accurate. A good book for a beginner as well as more experienced buttoniers I would say, well illustrated and inspiring.

By Shell
i love this book. even though you can't always find similar buttons to the ones used, you still feel inspired to 'make do' with what buttons you already have. well worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful button jewellery 14 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Button Jewellery is a collection of jewellery projects using buttons. The designs are fresh, pretty and very wearable. I loved the photography and the instructions are very easy to follow. The only problem I had is that she uses some quite unusual buttons in her designs and I have occasionally had trouble tracking down something suitable I could use instead.
