These Amish heart stamped ceramic buttons are handmade one at a time in my studio. Stamps were used to make recessed impressions while the clay was still wet.
They were then fired and hand glazed with a bright red, then wiped down so each detail shows clearly, and finally glazed with a clear glaze. They were then re-fired to a very durable high cone 6 in my electric kiln. Each one is highly detailed.
Each button has a shank on the back which is the best for sweaters and knits. The buttons have been carefully sanded and smoothed so that they won't snag on your delicate fabrics.
These buttons can be washed on the gentle cycle with the garment turned inside out or hand washed.
Use these buttons to grace a new creation of yours, whatever it may be...a bag, a scarf, a book, a hat, shawl or handbag! The perfect finishing touch to your project. Tell the world it was "Handmade with Love" ♥♥
Each button is approximately 7/8" (2.2 cm) x 1/8" (0.3 cm) out of white porcelain clay. Very light and delicate (yet strong!)
