New Button Drop Earrings

I’ve just been updating the button drop earrings section of my button jewellery shop. For a long time I’ve been making button earrings with multiple buttons in rows, or stacked on top of each other, like this…

…and I’ve added a few new designs in these styles. But I also thought it was time for something new, and I’ve also added a whole bunch of more minimalist button earrings, made with just one quite small button on each earring hook. There are some made with the 9mm buttons I use for my stud earrings, in lots of different colours – plus a few with flower shaped buttons, and some made of wood. You can browse the whole collection here.

New Hook Button Earrings in Vintage Colours

When people talk about “vintage” or “heritage” colours – what do they mean? I think it’s usually to do with a muted, soft tone to the colours, which might be because a once-bright colour faded with age, or because the pigments used in whatever times qualify as “vintage” may not have been as bold as some used today.

Thus I make a distinction between jewellery made with “vintage buttons” – anything that comes to me secondhand, and appears to be ten years old or more (sometimes a lot more), I usually class in this category – and “vintage colours”, which might be new buttons, just with a softer tone.

Then again, some buttons may be both at once. And some of my jewellery might be made with a mixture of differently-aged buttons. If things look good together, I don’t usually try to segregate them by age. So in my latest button earring collection, you’ll find new buttons alongside older ones, but the colours are themed according to a vintage palette.
