Dorset Button Earrings choose from 9 colours. Made to order

I offer the opportunity to change your colour to match your outfit and all you need is one pair of hoops which can be purchased separately from the dropdown menu.

To compliment my Dorset Button earrings with their detachable pendants I also offer the opportunity to order further pendants to match your outfits. Your order will include two Dorset Button pendants worked in your chosen colour to make one pair of earrings.

You can also place an order for a set of hoops shown in the image. These hoops are silver plated and nickel compliant.

These Dorset Button earrings are worked in linen on a 35mm hollow brass ring. When added to the hoop earring findings as shown the total drop is 65mm. These Dorset Buttons will be worked in the Blandford Crosswheel design to show off the yarn to its best advantage without the the usual two rows on rounding on the inside of the ring.

The Dorset Button can be easily removed from the earring finding so are versatile and additional button pendants can be ordered separately. The earring findings are silver plated.

Earrings made from yarn has always been a favourite of mine. However, the type of yarn used is an important factor when I choose what to buy as I find some yarns, when worn next to my skin, brings me out in what looks like a heat rash. To avoid such allergies I use cotton, linen, and polyester yarns to work my Dorset Buttons.

The Dorset Button cottage industry originated in Shaftesbury in the 1620s and became a major cottage industry throughout east Dorset creating employment for many families. Dorset Buttons were replaced by buttons made by machines during the first half of the 1800s. To help keep this heritage craft alive, I use the original methods to work my Dorset Buttons but use contemporary materials. I also try out new designs and ways to use the skills of this heritage craft.

Some monitors do not show colours the same way as mine so please take into consideration that colours may be slightly different.
