Buttons are filled with storied symbolism, from the beautiful mother-of-pearl buttons made in the 1940s by the Lucky Day Co., to those still being pulled from the earth by metal-detecting hobbyists that fell from the uniforms of civil war soldiers. Buttons very much like coins are often engraved and printed with the insignia of our land, our people, or our cause. So wearing one today can remind us of who we are now or where we come from.


It's safe to say that for as long as humans have walked the earth flowers have been given as tokens of love, friendship, affection, intention, accomplishment & sympathy. The beauty of a flower evokes unexpressed thoughts &  feelings that can be difficult to find words for. Delicate and often needing careful nurturing to bloom flowering plants can open our hearts to the vulnerable tenderness that so desires brightly colored expression.


The telling and keeping of time has a long and ever-evolving history with humanity. The word “clock” comes from the medieval Latin word clocca, meaning “bell”, with cognates in many different European languages. There have been many examples throughout history of devices made to mark the passage of time that doesn't involve our current numerical system. Some examples are candle clocks, incense clocks, hourglasses, and tally sticks. It is thought that the earliest known records of humans utilizing time-measuring devices started with the sundial, created in Ancient Egypt. Soon after, the use of water clocks was known to have been used in Ancient Egypt and Babylon as well.


After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
