“As metals like copper, brass, and bronze age and patina, they become more beautiful over time. Metal buttons lend themselves a great addition to a handmade garment that is going to be worn for years. I like to think my buttons are adding a finishing touch to a masterpiece that someone else has created. A joint creation in a sense. When someone has taken so much time and effort to create such a beautiful garment, they shouldn't be putting generic buttons on such a thoughtfully crafted piece of clothing.” —Nicole Ibey, creator of the Handmade Metal Buttons Bring the beauty of the natural world to your handknits with the Handmade Metal Buttons.
