Sponsor Spotlight: Buttons by Becky
For the past few weeks I have had the pleasure of working with Becky of Buttons by Becky on a special button order for the D.I.Y. Louisville Craft Collective. When I went to pick up our order, I was amazed at all of the accessory options Becky has available for her buttons: necklaces, earrings, key chains, flip flop bedazzles, badge reels, zipper pulls, hair pins – literally, anything you can think of! Becky has books full of images that can be turned into buttons, but she can also make custom orders from your images. This is great for sports groups or schools that are looking for unique logo fundraiser items. Check out the Buttons by Becky Facebook page to see pictures of the many buttons Becky has created.
My favorite item in her shop is this interchangeable magnetic necklace. I’ve been wearing it nearly daily since I received it. With this necklace, you have almost endless possibilities for matching your accessories to any outfit. If you want to change the color or the style, you just snap on a new button and you instantly have a new, coordinating accessory. And even if you don’t have the perfect button design for your outfit, the medallion can be worn flipped around showing the etched bird and branch design on the back. So versatile!
You can see that I picked out a set of Fleur de Lis buttons for my necklace, but you can bet that I’ll be adding more button tops to my collection soon.
Becky sells her buttons at many craft and art shows locally, but she also takes custom mail orders. Rumor has it that her next venture includes etched leather bracelets. I can’t wait to see what new designs she has in store!
