This dainty hand-dyed vintage pearl button bracelet makes this bracelet the perfect gift for a young woman celebrating one of life's important moments.
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.
In this piece:
- Three vintage hand-dyed pearl buttons
- One medium vintage grey ocean pearl button
- Czech crystal chain in white opal
- Length is 7 1/4" to 7 1/2"
