LEESBURG, VA – Ketterman’s regularly hosts designers from among their many collections but Grandmother’s Buttons is an ideal match for Leesburg, combining the old with the new, much like the town itself. Many of the buttons used by Susan Davis and her team of jewelry designers are more than 100 years old from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. This year’s jewelry collection includes buttons made from brass, pewter, glass, cut steel, and velvet.
“We’re excited to have Susan bring history and style together for our clients,” says Tammi Ketterman, “She is an expert in old buttons and is able to create extraordinary pieces that highlight the unique character of each button.”
Grandmother’s Buttons was inspired by a 1985 visit to Susan Davis’s grandmother who, like many people of her generation, had a button box. While looking through the buttons, a jet button caught their eye for use as an earring. The company’s jewelry designs are distributed throughout the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Europe and Japan.
“Customers might not even know they are buying a button-based piece at first glance,” says Tammi Ketterman, “But the designers leave the shank, a little loop on the back of the button, to preserve the value of the button.”
Susan Davis will be in the shop to answer questions, assist customer in choosing pieces and will answer questions or examine customers’ button collections.
