Ruth Ross / Twirl Studio
I love spinning tops especially the vintage metal kind with the handle you can pump up and down to make the tin body whir and spin. If you don't know what I'm talking about, they look a lot like these shiny, stacked button "knob" rings by Portland, Oregon's Ruth Ross. Though they look quite serious here, posed stately against a dark background, her site is fun and full of playful pieces worth checking out!
Another Portland artist working with buttons is Tay MacIntyre of Twirl Studio. I love this vintage glass piece (left, US$230); the bowl rings, like this stacked one (right, US$110) are also fun.
