Antique Button and Crystal Bracelet

Zelena Bracelet

This bracelet features an authentic antique button, a modern Czech glass button, a vintage pearl button, and a Swarovski crystal.

We used the Czech word for green, Zelena, in the name to celebrate the radiant olivine green of the glass buttons. Every antique button is a one and only, chosen just for you, and so will not be identical to the image. 

The pearl buttons were made from mussel shells harvested from the Mississippi River by the American Pearl Button Company of Washington in Iowa. A few decades after the button company closed its doors in 1964, the great-grandson of the original owner, decided to sell the remaining stock and we bought it all. 

Grandmother Buttons hand-dyed the vintage pearl buttons featured in this piece in small batches on the stovetop in our St. Francisville, Louisiana design studio.
