When I had little children, I made all their clothes on my own and the most pleasant activity when pieces nearly were ready was choosing the neccesary supplies such as buttons. In the village where I lived, there was a little shop where you could choose buttons from a gigantic huge range and when you returned home you always could be certain that you bought some unique pieces. The times have changed. The shop no longer exists and now you have to purchase all supplies in a department store ; nothing wrong, but the ranges are very limited. Hence, the idea matured to get started on my own and to design my own collection of buttons. It took a while before everything was set on point, but you can see here the final results.
The buttons are handmade, for the special forms I work with own designed home-made molds and glazes which have been developed in my studio. The buttons are painted piece by piece by hand. The used glaze is lead free.
The buttons are unique and very limited,so the chance that your neighbor will purchase the same button is virtually nil!
The glazes used are resistant to detergents, but I would be careful when using metal drums. In the washing machine it seems best to use a protective cover which also is used for protection of delicate materials such as lingerie. Drying in the tubmledryer does not seem very appropriate, the buttons are firm, but it could be that small pieces would break when tumbling in the metal dryer.

It goes without saying that the other attributes which could be seen on photograph (sewing thread, needle, embroidery scissors...) are not included in the price.
Please note that all offered items are ready to ship, unless differently stated. The ordered items leave 1-2 working days after receipt of payment. The packages firmly packed to prevent breakage or damage will be sent to you with the BPOST PRIOR (Belgian Post). This society is certainly not the cheapest, but it has de excellent delivery performance ; worldwide deliveries, very fast and all packages arrive on site without any problem.
Lead times for deliveries with BPOST PRIOR : - Belgium : 24 hours - Europe : 3 -5 working days - Worldwide : 5 - 10 working days To check to accuracy of this statement, please feel free to have a look at the reviews of my shop.
To reduce the freight charges, I employ the next rules: Orders with a value below 40, - Euros, are sent non-registered. Orders having a value of 40, - Euros or more are sent by registered mail with a track-and-trace system.
Since it is not the intention at all that too high freight charges have to be paid, I developed the following way of working :
1. BEADS - BUTTONS - ORNAMENTS Only the first set is paying the freight charges ! It does not matter how many sets are being ordered, the freight charges remain unchanged. (Service of the house :-) ). Please note that this rule only applies to the purchase of beads, buttons and little ornaments.
2. CERAMICS Since BPOST has special requirements for transporting larger pieces and additionally the freight charges are quite high, the correct charges are calculated based on the unit which is offered in my listing : indicated freight charges for larger amounts only are estimated. So, if you want to purchase more than one unit, please convo me. In that case I can make you an offer with the exact freight charges.
It goes without saying that I inform you when the shipment leaves here soonest and that I advise you about the tracking number when it concerns a registered shipment.
In case you would like to receive a registered consignment, even if the value is below 40, - Euros, or if you would rather work with a different carrier (TNT, Fedex, DHL), it is also possible. In that case, please contact me because it is obvious that the transport costs should be revised.
Please note that eventual taxes and/or import duties are for the account of the customer.
Please arrange payment at the time you place the order. In that case, you have the assurance that your order will leave correctly and promptly. If there is no confirmation of payment 5 days after placing the order, I unfortunately will have to cancel your order. In that case, I will inform you. Payment can be made by PayPal or by Direct Checkout.
