Matching hemp necklace and bracelet

Yesterday I took Toby to Hebden Bridge to the birthday party of one of his clients, Chrissie, at the hat shop, which has been open for one year. Above you can see one of his commissions, firstly the necklace is on its side, the hanging button would be at the back of the neck where it fastens at length of choice, and then a close up of the bracelet, which is also adjustable. They are both made with Chrissie's mussel shell buttons, then Toby colour co- ordinated them with his handmade polymer clay beads, vintage glass buttons and beads, and knotted all on two colours of naturally dyed hemp.

Toby has a variety of hemp if anyone would like this style of jewellery made up he will email you a selection of buttons and beads to choose from in your colour choice.

Chrissie had a good idea, to visit a button factory, does anyone know of any in the UK?

I must admit that I do like jewellery made from buttons and these are especially nice.
