In the first picture you can see a tangle of old Christmas decoration, given to Toby by a lady who buys quite alot of his creations from a shop in Todmorden, 'Vanilla Pod'. She thought Toby might be able to do somthing with it, as he likes to reuse and recycle.
As a 'thank you', he made this zip/bag charm for her, using some of the beads reclaimed from the decoration. Quite a transformation!

For jewellery made to order, email Toby:

button knots


We had a phone call last week from Spirals, saying that a customer had asked for one of Toby's button necklaces, but they'd run out. She wanted a green/blue/brown colour theme, choker length.

After a visit to the bead shop to buy lengths of cord in various colours, Toby chose a few drops from his vintage glass chandelier collection, then off to his bedroom to wade through jars and trays full to the brim with old buttons. He spent most of the weekend making jewellery, then I drove him to Hebden Bridge to deliver his creations.

Here you can see the final results, two knotted necklaces, the size is adjustable, using the loop and buttons. The lady can choose, hope she likes at least one of them! the other can stay in the shop for sale.

This style of necklace is £16 each, orders taken, email:
