Medium Obvara Buttons
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 on the large button allows the piece to be used for bag closures, sweaters, shirts and blouses, shawls and hats. Because we inset the shank, the button will be able to fit more closely to the garment. Our unique design profile makes a lighter button than a typical clay button while preserving the durability of the piece.
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, coated with an acrylic, and a shank is attached to finish the piece. The button is approximately 1 inch in diameter and come five in a set.
Pick a favorite color or choose "Brenda's Choice" and let her make the tough decision for you.

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.
