I'm Fran from the Highlands of Scotland, and I love buttons!
I have been making clothes for over 20 years and have collected buttons from all over the world to use on my work. I have spent many happy holidays hunting down button shops, or trawling street markets for buttons, old and new.
I used to make buttons out of polymer clay, but was never happy with the results, they always looked a bit wonky. I suppose thay had a certain charm, but it was not worth the blistered palms they caused.
I now make buttons out of resin, which I absolutely love doing and I am happy with the results.
The photos are of my handmade buttons.
This is my first foray into the blogosphere, couldn't really see the attraction, until I found "Button Floozies" and thought, "ah, now i see the point!"
I look forward to keeping up with my fellow button enthusiasts posts, and hope that you will be interested to see mine.
