A couple of new long button necklaces have been listed today.
I’ve always liked the black and white monochrome colour scheme, and have made quite a few black and white button necklaces over the years.
Here’s the latest one:
But I’ve personally found that black and white is a bit too dramatic for me to wear – it looks like they’re wearing me, rather than the other way round, because I have rather muted colouring. So I like to do a slightly toned-down monochrome-type look using black and beige instead. I have a black and beige striped dress which goes nicely with a black and beige button necklace, like as this one:
This necklace is one of my favourite colour schemes to make. It’s popular with other people too – these tend to sell very quickly!
I like to think of burgundy, teal and and mustard as “the hipster primary colours” because they’re the kind of colours I used to see on certain type of person in a certain type of coffee shop in the 2010s… I have no idea what sorts of people might go to what sorts of coffee shop these days or in the future, because coffee shops were cancelled for a long time, and types of people may also have been cancelled due to everyone uniformly staying in their houses wearing grey tracksuits, apparently. I didn’t participate in this phenomenon, because I worked from home already (I am VERY FORTUNATE in this, yes) and so continued to wear my normal clothes throughout lockdown.
However, recently I cracked and bought some harem pants from Hush, and to be honest, at all times when they are not in the wash, they are on me. So, yeah. That thing happened to me too, eventually.
Anyway, this is a total digression. Here are some more photos of this new necklace.
You can get this necklace (or one of its descendants) from here. And you can wear it even if you’re not a hipster, I promise.

I have a big pile of grey buttons, and these look lovely next to slightly more saturated colours, to create subtly coloured necklaces for people who like some softer tones in their outfit. I’ve made three new necklaces – one in blue, one in green and one in burgundy, all mixed in with a variety of grey buttons.
Here’s a close-up of them all mixed together:
Plus the obligatory “on the wooden board leaning against an apple tree” shot. Although you can’t actually see the apple tree. There’s a nice bit of sage, though.
All of these necklaces are available in my shop.
The green and grey one (which I’m half-wondering about keeping, so be quick!) is here.
A few new button necklaces today, which I have photographed in the garden. The garden is being conveniently rampant and provides a nice background at this time of year.
As the light was good, I took a new photo of these vintage grey pearl button stud earrings, which are not new at all, but somehow got left out of my more recent photo sessions in which I photographed all the jewellery on this weathered wooden board. They’ve been the odd ones out in the shop for ages with a plain white background, but today they were finally updated.
