Button Bothy

Hi, I'm Alison, the creative behind Button Bothy. I am a button obsessed jewellery maker, living in the beautiful North West Highlands of Scotland.

Most people have some memory of “Granny’s Button Box” and for me this is where my passion for buttons started. As a child I spent most of my time making things - anything I could find was utilised. I was very keen on art at school and went on to study sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art, where I produced sculptures and installations made predominately from buttons. It was around then that my passion for buttons became an obsession! I graduated in 2002 and after spending a while longer in Edinburgh I decided to return to my birthplace in the North West Highlands. After the birth of my son I scaled down my sculpture work and focused on the jewellery I had been making with my ever-growing button collection.

Each piece of Button Bothy jewellery is handmade by myself in my studio in the Highlands of Scotland. Most days I can be found “playing” in my studio, creating new pieces of unusual and unique jewellery from an assortment of materials, in lots of different styles.

I feel incredibly lucky to be able to live and work in the beautiful village of Poolewe in Wester Ross, Scotland. When I am not working, I like to spend my time with my friends and family, enjoying all our local area has to offer, not least the spectacular scenery.
