Buttons can be a fun item for earring packaging.
They can serve as a sort of “earring card” if you put the earwires or posts through the button’s holes.
Using buttons this way can also keep a pair of earrings nicely rounded up during travel or shipping (earrings love to move around inside their gift boxes whenever they have the chance!).
Buttons can add a memorable, handmade touch to your packaging – especially if they’re a good match with the style of jewelry you make.
For example, you might use vintage buttons as packaging for Victorian-style earrings.
And for keeping your own earring pairs together at home, buttons are a great solution!
(Note: The only earrings made by me in this post are the pair on the bright red button. All other earrings pictured above I’ve purchased from other artists over the years – and I wear them all the time!)
