Dorset Buttons


Here is a pic of some Dorset Buttons I made about 11 years ago - I lived in Dorset from the age of 2 (born in Wiltshire - next County over!) until I emigrated age 24 :-)
The Dorset Button industry began in the 1600's in the town of Shaftesbury - that is where I went to High School! and my Mum still lives 7 kms away...

Very interesting! I love the colors you've chosen for each one. Another item for my to-do list?
