This brooch was created to showcase a collection of five different traditional styles of Dorset button.
The base is a large (45mm diameter) Singleton button made using pure silk in an emerald green shade, which is adorned with a 18mm beaded Cross Wheel button worked in shades of green with tiny glass beads, a dark green 12mm Yarell Cross Wheel button, a 15mm Dorset Knob in green and three small (10mm) simple Bird's Eye buttons in toning shades of green cotton.
The brooch is hand finished on the back and fastens with a metal brooch pin.
It is supplied in a gauze bag together with a slip giving information about the different types of Dorset button involved in its construction.
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.
