My Buttons in Stitch Magazine!

I hate leftover polymer clay. It sits around, gets hard and crumbly and eventually is thrown away. Bad for the environment and the pocketbook. So I started mixing my clay remnants to create earthy, organic looking pebbles. I started with earrings, but they don't use up much scrap clay so I also started making buttons. My Faux Pebble buttons resemble polished river stones and textured beach pebbles.

Stitch magazine (a special publication from Quilting Arts) liked them so much they were selected for a handmade button feature in the Winter '08 edition!


  1. That is such a great idea. What a way to create a product and save the planet at the same time from the waste. Impressive.
