Mixed Dorset Button Rings
Closed Rings for Making Dorset Buttons, mixed bags
Each bag of mixed buttons will give you enough rings to make the projects for each Beaker Button Dorset button book. Where we can't get the same rings as we used in the books a suitable substitute will be made so you can make the project, even if it's a different size. Rings will come in separate size numbered bags so you know what you've got. We've rounded the numbers up so you have a few spare to play with. We've rounded down slightly on the price so there is a small saving on buying a mixed bag, rather than individually. These mixed bags are for rings only and do not include any other materials (thread, needles, embroidery hoops, brooch backs etc).

Here at Beaker Button we're passionate about the fabulous craft of Dorset button making. We are always coming up with new designs and uses for Dorset buttons and we are fascinated by the endless possibilities they present. From finishing hand knitted or crocheted projects to embellishing Quilts, Dorset buttons add that special unique touch that makes a project really sing. We turn them into jewellery, either stitched together or simply on their own. We use them on bags, scarves, cards, clothing and more. Everything you can do with a normal button you can do with a Dorset button, and you can make your Dorset button completely individual, customised to complement your project.
Dorset buttons were stitched by hand in Dorset from the early 1600's to 1851. They were shipped all over the world and were even worn by royalty. This cottage industry employed over 4000 people at its height, making over 100 different Dorset button types, all in white linen. Their popularity died overnight after the Great Exhibition of 1851, when a new button machine was showcased. Many families were left destitute and emigrated to escape starvation, and the art was more or less lost. The W.I., the Arts and Crafts movement and others have kept this fabulous craft alive and now you can learn how to make them too.
Dorset buttons are coming back in a big way. Here at Beaker Button we love using modern colour and materials to create a contemporary twist on this fabulous craft. There is nothing more trendy than personalising your project with your own hand stitch Dorset button!
