About Us


Launched in 2003, Michelle Buttigieg’s goal was to create designs that are unique and affordable by most of us. After a successful career in the hospitality Industry and having traveled almost around the world, Michelle was inspired to create head turners. Through a unique assortment of styles, all created exclusively for Buttardi, every piece is hand made and given the attention only a Buttardi comes with.

The designs are inspired by three main factors: Michelle’s surroundings - the great city of New York, the beads themselves and European roots which come out naturally in certain designs and mark the original traits, which make up Buttardi. It is her hope that each creation will bring much use and delight year after year.

Buttardi’s Various Collections have their own character and include Semi-Precious Stones, Swarovski Crystals, Gold Filled & Sterling Silver, imported Vintage German Cameos, Fire Polished Czech Beads, Chevron Beads and many more.

During Summer of 2003, Buttardi was launched in Europe and Michelle Tanti took over the European Sales and Promotion Management of Buttardi. Michelle Tanti works in Public Relations and is an ultimate jewelry lover herself. Through private viewing and social events, she has created an exclusive way of buying these original hand made pieces with a Mediterranean touch.
