Through the years, Susan has sought out buttons from Paris to Shanghai, the New York Garment District to the New Orleans French Quarter. It is really the thrill of this hunt that keeps her going, and that has kept Grandmother’s Buttons, for all its growth and change, true to its original idea of transforming venerable old buttons into artistic one-of-a-kind jewelry. Through the years, company’s mantra has become: “honor the button.”
Every piece is handmade in the studios located in the historic district of St. Francisville, La. Each piece is accompanied by a tag that indicates the era of the button(s) used and its composition.
Blue Tiny Tango Necklace
One authentic antique stamped brass button (circa 1880-1920) dangles below a fiesta-bright blue Czech glass bead in this simple 18 to 22 inch long necklace. A great piece all on its own or married with chains or other button pieces.
It's really difficult to photograph a necklace of this length on a model with no lower body so, please, use your imagination...
