Handmade Copper Buttons - Leaf Pattern
A set of nine handmade copper buttons, embossed with a mesh design. I start with copper sheet, which is first embossed with a pattern made with a real leaf. The buttons are then cut and formed, before a final polish and pass through my tumble polisher to clean and harden them. These buttons are approx 19mm diameter. They were originally a bright copper colour, but with time they will develop a lovely patina that softens and mellows their appearance.
The buttons are washable, but I recommend hand washing to protect their natural patina.
Although the leaf design is similar on each button, they do vary slightly due to their handmade nature and to the variation in the natural materials used to create the patterning.
