BizziZizzi -Buttons Beads & Beautiful Things
More about Lizzi
"Buttons are like mothers - they hold everything together!"
Born into a family of artists, musicians, photographers, knitters and seamstresses, it was only natural that Lizzi would pick up the creative vibe and from an early age was doodling and colouring to her heart's content.
The first sign of her future in the creative world was her début on stage (all be an end of primary school production) recreating a painting by Lowry while the rest of the cast sang 'Matchstick Men and Matchstick Cats & Dogs' by Brian Burke and Michael Coleman.
Later, at secondary school, she took part in a Young Enterprise Scheme and was production manager for making wooden school badges.
Then hormones and realities of life and making a decent living took over and her creative hobbies were set aside while she carved a career in the corporate world.
Now, with a young family of her own, who also love to cut, colour and stick together their own yoghurt pots, boxes and lollipop sticks, she felt the urge to really give her creative side a chance to shine.
Having tried nearly every type of craft available, from batik to blacksmithing, she has settled on creating buttons with polymer clay. Not only is this one of the materials she remembers using as a child (Fimo), she feels strongly that everything she makes should have a purpose in life, not to just look pretty.
Lizzi is also one of the founder members of The Handmade Hub - a community group of artists, designers and makers based in and around Towcester, South Northamptonshire.
BizziZizzi ships to United Kingdom from Towcester, England.
