Our Spinning wheel buttons were just introduced in May at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Now on eBay for the first time you can purchase these directly from the artist for your hand made garments. These nice little engraved spinning wheel buttons are the perfect size for vests and such. The buttons are 5/8 inch and have a large loop so knitting yarn can pass through. The design was taken from a 19th Century, steel engraved, printers block and converted into this solid jewelers pewter button by the artist/jeweler, James E. Boyle. They are hand cast in lead-free pewter by the artist. The spinning wheel buttons are part of the pewter collection in the Rams Horn textile arts catalog.
