Reviewed 6 October 2017

On my way to visit the Cathedral on a Sunday i walked by this unique shop . Walked inside, I was fascinated . Everything made with buttons , a true artistry .
Bought a ring and now I regret for not getting more for birthdays and other occasions. The woman behind the counter who was busy with assortment of buttons made it into a unique gift wrap. Lovely place to visit .

We walked by this shop after dinner and were charmed by the necklaces, earrings and bracelets all made of buttons!

Rui, the designer, maker and shop owner is a lovely man happy to share his story. Educated as a jewelry designer, he developed this style to offer interesting jewelry at affordable prices.

Everything is made of buttons, largely very typical buttons. They are mounted with aluminum wire, and gathered and mounted in interesting ways and colour combinations.

Rui will shorted or lengthen as needed, while you wait. He adjusted a necklace for me twice just to get the right length!

Our visit to his shop resulted in 8 purchases, some as gifts, in various different colour combinations. But I also treasure the memory of our lovely visit. He is an impressively creative guy!

After spotting Rui's pearl-covered Vespa parked outside his tiny shop - I went in and proceeded to fall in love with his creative designs. I couldn't get enough of them. Beautiful necklaces, pins, earrings, rings, key rings etc. - all made with buttons! Run don't walk! You will love it all!

If you are looking for unusual buttons this is the place to go, but more than buttons, the owner makes the most extraordinary jewellery from buttons. You'll want to buy everything in the shop.
