new listing

I was going to get this up last night, but our Internet was down for almost 12 hours.  So I'm posting it tonight.  I listed a new pair of earrings tonight: Button Dangle Earrings - Orange/Brown.  I can't believe that I'm still listing pieces that I made this summer.  It's amazing how much you can get done when you're not working haha.  I've sold a couple pairs in this style with red/blue buttons.  Hopefully these will do well, too.

I have a bunch of button ideas that I need to start working up, especially before the fall/winter shows, as the button items tend to do especially well in person.  I have plans for pretty much every aspect of my button work: stud earrings, dangle earrings, magnets, button charm bracelets, and button embellished bracelets.

I also feel like I'm finally getting the hang of photographing earrings in my light box.  My first attempts were pretty bad, but I'm pretty pleased with my shots for this pair of earrings.  Let me know what you think.

I'm going to list more earrings in the next couple weeks, including a purple striped beadwoven pair and as promised, dangle radish Luna Lovegood inspired earrings.  Stay tuned.


  1. Very simple and elegant;) I love them

  2. I love buttons! These are cute. And the jumprings look real sturdy! I wish I could get the hang of photographing in my lightbox - I'm about the give up! Urg!

  3. Thanks Deb! I think that the jump rings are. I just sent you an e-mail about light boxes. I'm happy to help in any way that I can. :) Don't give up yet!

  4. love 'em! And the colors are so perfect for this fall :)

  5. Your pictures really are great! It is one aspect of the online experience that I dread. I tend to be a perfectionist and never like the pics I take. You did a lovely job of making your earrings look great!!

  6. Thanks so much Mary! Since the beginning of this past summer, I've been kind of obsessed with my picture taking. I'm pretty hard on myself, but I do keep seeing progress which is encouraging. I'm glad that other people can see it, too!
