Grainne Morton is an artistic magpie. She collects various bits and pieces which may have been discarded and long forgotten. She rescues beautiful old buttons, jewels and gems and creates wonderful pieces like these brooches. There is a real nostalgia in these works of art and I would love to own one! Apparently it was an artistic aunt who inspired Grainne and a childhood filled with lots of craft activity. Now where is my button box?


  1. I am so glad that you are posting again, you come up with some of the most unique artists and interesting things. Does Grainne Morton have a website or blog? Thanks for posting this work.

  2. Oh these are absolutely wonderful! Have just visited her website and am completely in love. You always find the best things :) K x
