Cute as a Button

. . .  except these aren't buttons but rather little post earrings.  One of the things we enjoy the most about selling in local markets and shows is the opportunity to meet so many people that live in our area.  We also get a lot of feedback and ideas for new designs and several people requested smaller post-type earrings to match their necklaces.  After making up a few custom orders I decided to make more to add to our collection.  These are a lot of fun to make and I have a system now where I can make them more consistent in size and shape.  We use surgical steel posts and embed them into the clay before baking so there is no gluing needed afterwards.  I'm not a real fan of glue and try to avoid it whenever possible!

I have some of these listed in our Art fire Studio as well in our Etsy Shop that match our beads and buttons.
