    I thought these buttons are made up of bone. Anyways, they are nice. What’s the price by the way? Are they very dear?

    Thank you for this post I have been aware of it for a number of years, I hadn’t anticipated becoming so well known in my field, I took personal details about myself and my family down from the internet in 2008 & would prefer it if bloggers didn’t mention details about my family, as you might imagine I am very protective of them.
    My buttons are made out of ceramic and they are some of the most expensive on the market but that’s because they are worth it 😉 they sell all over the world including the Victoria & Albert museum and Loop in London, I have a hard time keeping up with demand so prices reflect this, I still sell on my etsy shop, I love my etsy shop =)
