I Heart Buttons
Beautifully original and everlasting.
About I Heart Buttons
How to describe Lesa Simons of I Heart Buttons proved incredibly difficult - she's an artisan, her work is of an amazing quality but is she a florist, a button expert or an up-cycler of jewellery? But then we realised that Art doesn't fit neatly into a category box each time and Lesa is an artisan who takes all three elements and combines them brilliantly into her Button Bouquets.
These are something quite different and the fact that, unlike those lovely bouquets of real flowers bought in celebration, these will never fade.
So, what is used to make these bouquets so very different? Well, obviously buttons! But then there are categories of buttons, which, until we met Lesa, we didn't even know existed. There are contemporary buttons, vintage buttons, glass buttons and ceramic buttons to name but a few. If there is a piece of family jewellery which is of great sentimental value, Lesa can incorporate it into the design of your bouquet which is a wonderful way of making a bespoke piece even more personal.
Each bouquet is finished with ribbon around the stems and a collar of your choice and for those commissioned Bridal Bouquets; they each come with a Sterling Silver I Heart Buttons Charm and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Lesa works closely with her customers to ensure that each commission is exactly how they would wish it to be, keeping them informed of progress via email with photos attached.
'The bouquets are simply stunning. I am slightly lost for words to say just how pleased I am and how thrilled Angela was to get them. The workmanship is exquisite, they work really well in the vase and the colours and combinations you have chosen are just right. I can't believe how beautiful they are given how quickly you were able to make them. Just amazing. Not only did they get a better reaction from Angela than any bunch of flowers I could have bought, but they will last forever...'
'...I would recommend these over flower bouquets any day they are truly original and something you can keep forever, everyone that has seen mine has been wowed by them. Would 110% recommend any day. Thanks Lesa for all your hard work and help over the past few months really appreciate it and so grateful'.
There are so many occasions where flowers are used to celebrate a special Day or event - the button bouquets are a wonderful alternative to offer. Obviously weddings, but also christenings, birthdays, graduations... the list is endless. And they make a wonderful gift for anyone who suffers from a flower allergy.
Lesa also specialises in buttonholes, corsages, bridesmaids/flowergirl bouquets and table centrepieces.
