This unique hand made necklace is created using traditional Dorset Cross Wheel buttons worked in cotton thread in bright colours inspired by the flower of a variety of fuchsia called 'Voodoo' growing in my Dorset garden.
The five buttons are worked on metal rings in three sizes, 32mm, 25mm and 18mm and are securely attached to a 1m long 12mm toning red organza ribbon which allows flexibility in wear and is easily tied and adjusted. The necklace can be worn high on the neck as a choker or adjusted to sit lower to suit the neckline of the garment being worn.
A chunky Dorset button brooch is available.
The colours in the final picture are the truest representation of the shades used in the necklace.
I love making traditional Dorset buttons and wanted to produce something respecting the heritage of the craft but given a contemporary edge and immensely wearable too.
