The custom necklace was a gift for a young lady performing her first lead (Princess Winifred) in a play based on The Princess and the Pea, "Once Upon a Mattress." I know it will be a keepsake to remember her outstanding performance forever. Thank you!

I had such a lovely experience with this beautiful, unique shop. I recently purchased the set of wedding bands, and throughout my whole experience, Laura was so helpful and so kind and genuine! She was honestly such a pleasure to work with. This was my first time buying off of Etsy, and I could not have asked for a better shopping experience. My beautiful rings shipped very quickly from Canada to Delaware! Crazy fast! And opening my package was so exciting for my fiance and I! The rings came in beautifully wrapped boxes with a beautiful card from Laura. They fit like a glove! I had ordered two polished rings sizes 6 and 9. They were so wonderfully shiny and beautiful. I know that so much love, care, time, effort, and detail went into making these amazing works of art. She is truly an artist, and my rings are one of a kind :)
Lovebuttons, beginnings of passion
I'm passionate about what I do. About my little shop and every piece I make. I remember each one. Their curve and design, pattern, details... burnt fingers from my soldering torch... it's all a wonderful journey.
Lovebuttons, the name, came to me from a desire to create pieces with a bit of the incredible variety of patten found on antique button faces. I loved digging through them as a child. My mother had these clear pull out drawers in a blue cabinet in her sewing room. I used to spend hours in there, taking a drawer out at a time then sitting on the floor under her desk to sort through them. Ceramic, plastic, brass, etched and cut glass, even bone.
And then there is Silversmithing. It has been around almost as long as people.
I love that history. Age. Being a part of something so old! I think that reflects most in my pieces. Heirloom appeal. Quality. Patina. Pieces that will last and look like they already have.
This applies to most everything. Doesn't matter the craft--I love anything made by hands instead of machines. Master or beginner. Schooled, apprenticed or self-taught. If those hands have made it, I just love it!
I hope you find something special here at Lovebuttons. I hope you take a little time to read about each piece to catch your eye--perhaps even take a wee journey and in doing so, learn more about me too.
Thanks for stopping in--hope to see you again soon
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Silversmith
Laura loves working with her hands. Silversmithing, training the horse, digging in the dirt or shooting arrows from a recurve: between those joys life brings, she most-especially learns from still-soft moments of quiet contemplation.
Thanks for popping in here at Lovebuttons Jewellery. I individually make each and every piece you'll find here and it's something that makes my heart happy--if you know what I mean. I forge, mold, stamp, hammer, solder and pretty much anything else that will work silver into the pieces you find here.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If you prefer another carrier such as Fedex or UPS just let me know and I'll arrange to have it sent via that method and invoice you the difference through PayPal. My main reason for choosing Canada post, is that they do not charge a 'brokerage/handling fee" or any other hidden fee when the package arrives at your door.
Custom pieces take a little longer to ship as well, as they are made "fresh to order".
(My average is 4-5 days from Custom order to shipping date if supplies/gemstones are on hand. I will ALWAYS email you and keep you informed of any and all goings on. This is your piece and your money and you are entitled to know. If you have any questions or worries at all, please don't hesitate to write first. I'm never far from email...)
Refunds and Exchanges
The bottom line is, I want you to be happy. Lovebuttons is synonymous with good prompt service and no-stress shopping.
