Turquoise Owl Buttons

My turquoise owl buttons have found a new home and are packaged up and will be on their way to Australia later today. I just love the idea that my buttons and jewelry/jewellery items have found places all over the world. I just wish I had started marking on a map all the countries where they have been sent. I think that would have been fun. I don't have any more of these owls listed in my Buttons By Robin shop at the moment but I hope to get some more made this weekend. In the mean time there are lots to look at including owl buttons of different designs

White Rabbit from Alice In Wonderland Fused Glass Pendant

I know that my site is primarily for handmade buttons but I couldn't help designing a few Alice in Wonderland pendants in fused glass and listing them here. I particularly love the white rabbit in Alice in Wonderland and have incorporated him in this design This is made with a laser toner fused glass decal. When you use the right type of laser printer you can print the image in black and it fuses to a really dark reddish brown. The image becomes part of the glass and you can add anything you want. Too bad it only works in black but I'm working on doing some screen printed designs that will work on glass as well. That way I'll be able to add colour/color. Anyway hope you enjoy Alice in Wonderland as much as I do. As always you can find more of my buttons and jewelry at

Fireman or Firefighter Buttons

These buttons would be great for the little fireman/firegirl (I do have an image of a female firefighter for anyone that would like that.) I love the bright red colours/colors against the white. Also I think it's great to encourage children in their dreams to be whatever they want to be when they grow up. Firefighters are truly modern day heroes and these buttons help celebrate that. They can be found in my etsy shop at or the specific listing for the buttons is here

Artist or Studio Fused Glass Button-Bird Silhouette on Orange and White

I'm so excited to be adding some handmade artist or studio buttons to my . This is one of my latest creations Of course I'll still be adding my usual handmade resin buttons that seem to be so popular. I just wanted to expand a bit and add something a bit more unique and special for when you really want to add an extra special touch to something. I'm also adding a bit of my artisan jewelry/jewellery as well. My latest jewelry/jewellery additions are some fused glass Alice in Wonderland pendant. There are also a few fused glass Alice in Wonderland buttons. I've got more to add and will be doing so slowly over the rest of the week as time permits. The day job does get in the way and sometimes you just have to spend time with the hubby. Hopefully I'll be able to get some serious glass fusing done on the weekend. So many ideas, so little time.................
