Grandmother’s Buttons is a company steeped in history and story. It all started in a small, historic town in Louisiana where an industrious woman with uncommon passions built a thriving business with the help of her family and community. Her name is Susan Davis and she founded Grandmother’s Buttons in 1985 in her spare bedroom.
When inspiration strikes, Susan and her designers incorporate antique buttons and found objects into their jewelry designs.
Grandmother’s Buttons’ motto is to honor the button. The castings used to set antique buttons into their jewelry were made in Louisiana especially for them and were designed to preserve the integrity of the buttons by making it possible to mount them onto jewelry while keeping their shanks intact.
