We feature bracelets created by Corda Walker in every limited edition release. Corda has worked as a Grandmother's Buttons' designer for twenty-seven years and inevitably creates magic from a handful of colorful antique buttons, cufflinks, vintage glass, and filigree stampings.
Corda centered this bracelet with an outstanding antique champlevé enamel button featuring a triad of Art Nouveau moths. Champlevé was the most common enameling method in the 19th century. With this method, cavities are stamped into a metal base, filled with powdered glass, and then fired on high heat.
We're enthralled by antique enameled buttons like this one. Their vivid colors and painstaking craftsmanship make them the crown jewels of our button collection.
Flanking the enamel button is a small collection of red and russet tone antique buttons, including a floral perfume button and small champlevé enamel featuring a cluster of flowers.
In ancient myths, moths symbolized the soul's quest for truth. Just as a moth is always attracted to light, the soul is drawn to a search for divine truth. Moths are also fragile and delicate, representing the fragile nature of life.
