This listing is for four 2cm Dorset buttons. I made these by using various techniques of winding cotton thread around hollow brass rings. I have left threads attached for you to use when applying them to your project. The colours are rich shades of gold, orange and green. The thread is high quality cotton which has an attractive sheen.
They could be used as functional buttons or as a decorative feature on bags, clothing, headbands etc. or could be made into jewellery.
The creation of Dorset buttons was originally a large cottage industry in Dorset, England between 1622 and 1850, after which they were overtaken by machine-made buttons.
These buttons measure 2cm (.75") in diameter.
I can make these in different colours, sizes and quantities. I am happy to discuss custom orders.

Packaging - I wrap each item with care, and I use, when possible, recycled padded postal bags for ecological reasons and to keep costs to a minimum.
Custom orders - I love a challenge! I delight in making custom orders, either based on an item already in my shop, or something totally to the customer's requirements. Custom orders require a 50% deposit with the balance paid on completion of the item, on receipt of which the order will be shipped. See my feedback from happy customers for whom I have completed custom orders.
