Shawl Buttons from the Hobnob Collection
Our handmade clay shawl 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.
These unique versions of our Shawl Pin Family were designed for use with fibers that might not be able support the larger versions (both Large Shawl Pins and Small Shawl Pins), alpaca and lace weight yarns for examples. While we call the item a Shawl Button, it can be used as a ornament for a sweater or a hat adornment and some have used it in their hair.
Unlike the hallmarke of LickinFlames, where post-firing-manipulation is the games, each of these pieces is made from a stoneware clay. Each is made by hand, one at a time. The shawl buttons takes several weeks to dry and then the finishing can take place. Each piece is glazed with a glaze and color developed here at the studio and used exclusively in our work. When it is removed from the kiln a double pronged clip is added to finish the piece. approx. 1 3/8 x 3 1/4 inches long.
Choose individual colors OR choose "Brenda's Hand Selected Assortment" for a variety of colors.
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.
