ZECCA Buttons

Zecca Buttons
The name ZECCA springs directly from the Italian word "zecca" meaning a coin factory.

Karen's concept in naming ZECCA was to create a majestic link between valuable coins and precious buttons. ZECCA buttons are made from a synthetic modeling material known as Polymer Clay. "Fimo" is the most popular brand of this material, which has been around for about 40 years.
Much of her button and bead work is done in the ancient glass-making technique known as "Millefiore" where bars or sheets of color are combined or bundled and then "caned" out to reduce the image, after which the cane is sliced, revealing a pattern in cross section. The intricate forms and unique palettes of hand-mixed colors which characterize ZECCA pieces have been described as "springing directly from raw nature ... as well as the outer limits."

Note: * Buttons are created in limited editions. Some styles can be reproduced. Some are one-time only collectibles. * Buttons are NOT dry-cleanable, but are completely machine washable and dryable. * Price is per button
