Easy Button Earrings

My sponsor Wholeport sent me these fabulous pearl like buttons.  I didn’t have a specific use for them yet…when I started thinking about making some earrings out of them.

There were two sizes of them I received, each from different orders (with Wholeport I get monthly orders of craft supplies that I choose and then I add a tutorial showing how I used their product to their website).

I used jump rings to add a small and a large button to one ring and then put that ring of buttons on another jump ring with a button on either side.  I thought it wasn’t quite enough…So I added a few more buttons.

This is how I did it…

I have about 42 satin-covered buttons from my mom's wedding dress and this would be a lovely way to use them! Thanks for a great post!

This is brilliant! I absolutely love the idea of using buttons. I've got a ton of those leather ones hanging around, those would make some cool earrings!
