Purple Decorated Carbon Painted Buttons using Feathers
Our handmade clay buttons are individually decorated which makes each a unique item. Even though we carefully fire each piece in the same manner, variation occurs and gives unique qualities to the piece.
The shank or holes on the large button allows the piece to be used for bag closures, sweaters, shirts and blouses, shawls and hats.
The finished decoration on the pieces is a hallmark of LickinFlames. The button takes several weeks to dry and then the finishing can take place. When the pieces are removed from the kiln and decorated and cooled, each is washed, dried and an appropriate shank (where applicable) is attached to finish the piece. The button is approximately 1 3/8 inches in diameter

Remember that because of the handmade nature of the brooch, some variations should be expected. The quality is always the same standard that LickinFlames is known for, but some variations in color, design element placement and decoration patterns needs to be allowed. We know you will love the piece that is shipped.
