Hi There!

Welcome to my blog. I set up my Folksy shop in September 2010 selling revamped & recycled button jewellery - take a look www.folksy.com/shops/mamphii. I also have some of my vintage rings in "Daisy & Lola's", a great vintage shop in Norwich and sell at Clutter City Markets at the Norwich Arts Centre.

Making most of my time at home, as my son is poorly with a cold. I have been making some funky pendants out of plektrums and buttons. I'm pretty pleased with them!

Grand Opening of A Girl's Dream, Stratford Upon Avon - selling my rings!!

A Girl's Dream opened on Saturday 16th October - and I gather it was a great success. Photos of the event are on their FB page.

Vintage Button Rings for Sale in Daisy & Lola's, Norwich

I took 20 of some of my cutest vintage button rings into Daisy & Lola's on Lower Goat Lane, Norwich today. I was really pleased with the selection of flapper button rings and some more 1960s sparkling jewel button rings. I think they are going to retail for £6 a piece - a bargain me thinks! Great as a stocking filler!!

Rummaging through so many buttons...........

This weekend I received a bundle of 4 wonderful little parcels crammed full of vintage buttons from my mother-in-law, Evelyn. She had been going through her button box and had found some given to her by her Granny. I feel honoured to have them.

I have created 4 lovely rings from a selection of the buttons - and with a couple of coats of varnish, they look super sparkly!
