What began as a quest to find unique buttons evolved into a new business venture for Marissa and Michael Semprucci, founders of the Braintree-based manufacturing company Trimdin. Known for their artisan jacket line, the couple initially set out to create stylized pewter buttons. However, the idea was better in theory than in practice. “They didn’t work well,” says Marissa, “but we thought they were really interesting and asked ourselves, ‘What else could we use these for?’”
The company now offers handcrafted pewter wine bottle “necklaces” on customizable ribbons. Nautical designs include anchors and sand dollars and starfish cast from actual sea creatures. The charms can be draped around the neck of a wine bottle to add a bit of flair. The charms are available at Tale of the Cod in Chatham, The Write Choice in Mashpee and online at winenecklace.com.
