IIn celebration of the 30th annual Bouquets to Art at the de Young, the Museum Store will present a six-day series of Artisan Trunk Shows featuring local jewelry designers. Each day from Tuesday, March 18, through Sunday, March 23, a different artisan will present unique, handcrafted wares. Museum members receive a 10% discount on all purchases.
Friday's featured artisan is Susan Davis of Grandmother's Buttons. Utilizing recycled vintage buttons, Davis creates unique wearable art that pays homage to the past. 25 years ago, perusing through her grandmother’s button collection, she was struck with inspiration, and a new career and cottage industry were born.
