These Aren’t Your Grandma’s Buttons!
Using the traditional glassblowing technique called lampwork, each glass button is made of borosilicate glass, also known as Pyrex. The glass is formed by hand with a torch and then annealed, reinforcing the glass button to near unbreakable durability. Annealing is a strengthening process of slowly cooling glass to relieve internal stresses by using a kiln. Buttons that are made with shanks are reinforced with a glass shank that is hot welded on.
The color palette we use is very diverse. You can purchase a closure and then choose a fiber to match or you can send us a sample of your project and we can match the closure to your fiber. Click here to inquire about custom ordering.
