A fellow ButtonHolic introduced me to the beautiful work of Grainne Morton whose little miniature masterpieces are breathtakingly beautiful. Vintage found objects provide the inspiration for her contemporary jewellery and there are
buttons featured in almost all the pieces.
The found objects become the narrative for the jewellery and are collaged together by arrangement and rearrangement until all the objects connect with each other in order to create lively, colourful spontaneous stories.
Grainne aspires to evoke a feeling of nostalgia – working consciously in a miniature scale, so that the onlooker becomes involved in the piece, hopefully sparking memory and thought, as well as making them smile.
They certainly make me smile and I would more than happily wear them all – so I am just going to pop off and find a sponsor…
