My name is Celia Barbieri, and I am The Button Florist – 1 part hippie: 1 part mad scientist: 1 part world traveler: Shake together vigorously and serve!
I create unique alternatives to traditional flowers, using a mixture of up-cycled and vintage buttons, handmade ceramic buttons, and recycled sweater felt. I create flowers to commemorate special occasions such as weddings and anniversaries, but also to brighten up a room everyday!
I suppose my love for both nature and art is apparent in all my creations. I have always loved small trinkets and such. As a child I constantly picked up little treasures that I would find, from seashells on the beach, to things that other people considered trash. I’ve always had dozens of ‘collections’ as a child, as I still do now. I began making button flowers over 10 years ago and continue to evolve and expand different aspects of my business. Since then, I have branched out into new types of button flowers using ceramics and felt. This is my dream job come true!
