For those of you who don't know me I am Alison, the creative behind Button Bothy. Button obsessed mother to a fabuIous teenage son, living in the beautiful North West Highlands of Scotland.
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 from an assortment of materials, in lots of different styles. My studio doubles up as a shop for my creations and some other items I sell.
I am often asked what a Bothy is. For those not familiar a bothy is a basic shelter, usually left unlocked and available for anyone to use free of charge. Bothies are most commonly found in remote mountainous areas of Scotland and make great overnight shelters on long walks in the beautiful Highland mountains. Check out the Mountain Bothies Association for more information on bothies.
