A little over a year ago I discovered a fantastic jewelry company at the NYIGF called Grandmother’s Buttons, which created amazing pieces from vintage and antique buttons. As a lover of all things vintage, I was super excited to share them with everyone and I featured Grandmother’s Buttons and its owner, Susan Davis (who is an incredibly sweet person) on my blog. The post can be found HERE. A revisit to the NYIGF assured a stop at Grandmother’s Buttons and I’m happy I did because I discovered they are celebrating their 25th Anniversary.
“For 25 years, grandmother’s Buttons has created unique pieces of jewelry using antique and vintage buttons. Their signature lines is handmade in South Louisiana and sold to boutiques and stores across the US and other countries.”
While visiting Susan, I couldn’t help notice the very beautiful black ring she was wearing. She informed me that the black buttons used to create these rings are from the 1900’s and were actually found in New York. I instantly fell in love them. To think these buttons lived a whole other life and survived all this time.
I couldn’t help but purchase one of these black beauties and actually wore it out the same day. I’m constantly getting compliments on it which of course gives me the chance to give the ring’s history. Below is the ring that I purchased. I love having one of a kind pieces
As I did last time, I did a quick interview with Susan Davis, this time on her new pieces and the 25th Anniversary of Grandmother’s Buttons. She also showed me some beautiful sterling silver buttons which will surely make some exquisite jewelry.
I will continue to be a fan of Grandmother’s Buttons and will happily shout it from the rooftops of how wonderful Grandmother’s Buttons is.
