I've always loved miniatures - I think it's my fascination with tiny details whether on a piece of fabric, jewelry, or within a dollhouse. So when I found a cache of petite buttons at an antique shop in Iowa, I knew I had to add a new collection to my jewelry line.
I've since collected quite a few - all are circa 1885-1930. And the exquisite detail of the craftsmanship sometimes takes my breath away. I find myself wondering, What garment was this worn on? Who wore it? Where did its wearer travel to?
