Spotlight: Anna Butler of Custom Made

In 2004, designer Anna Butler launched Custom Made out of her love for handcrafting, accessories, and all things adorable.  Anna grew up in Oxford in the UK, where she inherited the sewing gene from her “mum and gram”.  [My mom bought me a sewing machine that sits in the back of my closet taunting me.  I’m lucky if I can stitch a button back on … and so is my mom for that matter!]  A friend of mine in London tipped me off to Anna’s goods and I raved about the Tweet Brooches and French Daisy Necklace in one of my previous posts.  Anna creates some of the most darling handcrafted items I have seen in awhile … and with a sense of humor!  Check out this awesome “Beware of the Yeti” Brooch – guys can wear this too!
