Take It From Me: Grandmother's Buttons (Review & Giveaway) CLOSED

March 9, 2012

Grandmother's Buttons (Review & Giveaway) CLOSED

"Susan Davis has told the story so many times now it has taken on the aura of myth—how one afternoon in 1985 she was visiting with her 95-year-old grandmother, rummaging as they often did through the elderly woman's life-time accumulation of keepsakes and treasures. That afternoon they delved into her many boxes of buttons and Susan, who had recently left her public relations job in Baton Rouge for farm life, saw in the contents of one box the possibilities of a new career and cottage industry. Plucking a sparkling jet glass from the jumble, she held it to her ear and said, "Grandma, this would make a beautiful earring!” Her grandmother agreed, cheerfully donated her buttons to Susan's new cause, and Grandmother's Buttons was born."

When I saw Grandmother's Buttons beautiful jewelry, it instantly brought back memories of my own grandparents who passed away only a few years ago. In the summer, while visiting my parents, I actually had the honor of going through my grandparent's buttons that my mom inherited when they died. It was neat to see the uniqueness of the buttons and how special they were to me. I have really admired Grandmother's Buttons, and the company they have become. Not only do their products look beautiful, but each piece has special meaning and emotion behind them.
I had the honor of reviewing 6 beautiful pieces from  Grandmother's Buttons collections, and have had so much fun with each one.
On Grandmother's Buttons site, you will find jewelry that you simply can't live without and will fall in love with the moment you see them. They have everything from Bracelets, Brooches, Charms, Earrings, Necklaces, Rings and Watches!
My brother got married in December, so I had a great reason to show off my jewelry at the wedding! I wore  Grandmother's Buttons Priceless Pearls Bracelet with matching pearl earrings and I absolutely loved them. The bracelet was very comfortable to wear and fit extremely well. The earrings complemented the bracelet and made my outfit complete, while looking stylish and cute!
This Silver Cuff Link Watch is just what I needed. It is a beautiful one-of-kind piece of jewelry that has saved me a lot of hassle. I am always checking my cell phone throughout the day to see what time it is, so I thought it would be nice to have a watch.  Now, instead of digging through my purse looking for my phone, I just look down at my wrist. I love that not only is it a watch, but it's a gorgeous piece of jewelry that is very flattering.
 
Something that I really like about  Grandmother's Buttons is the fit. Each piece stays in place and they don't feel too heavy or loose fitting. I have small wrists, so jewelry normally falls off throughout the day making me nervous that I am going to lose a piece of jewelry that I love.
I have received so many great compliments while wearing  Grandmother's Buttons jewelry and it is because each piece is simply stunning and unique, that you can't help but not LOVE them!
