Item details

Dorset Buttons originated in Shaftesbury in the 1620s. They became a major cottage industry in Dorset creating employment and income for many families. By the 1780s 4,000 women and children were employed in the industry. The industry came to an end in the early 1800s with the introduction of a button making machine.

I’m very fussy about the rings I use for working my Dorset Buttons and was very disappointed when my regular supplier changed the size of their 16mm Hollow Brass Rings. I felt they were for were far too chunky for Dorset Buttons. It has taken a while to find a replacement and I have decided to move from the hollow brass rings to closed jump rings. I have found these rings work better than the hollow brass rings for making 16mm buttons.
