The full title of this button is "Cupid Forging the Links of Matrimony Watched by the Lovebird". I love this button so much because the cupid is making jewelry. The button is also called Hymen Forging the Double Wedding Band" Or "Hymen God of Marriage." After doing a little more digging online, I found out that Hymenaios or Hymenaeus (Hymen), in Hellenistic religion, is a god of marriage ceremonies, inspiring feasts and song.

Antique buttons have been a huge part of Brandy McNair's life. She started collecting at a young age with her Grandmother Florine who was a collector and dealer. Brandy dreamt of replicating the imagery on the buttons in her jewelry designs and has been fine tuning her skills since she started Bella Vita in 2008.face
