Button Earrings!! I got my ears pierced solely so I could wear dangly earrings. Even though the stud button earrings are cute; (I even have two pair) I needed to make a seamstress's favorite notion a dangly masterpiece.
I used wire and spacer beads for most of them so I could easily use different size buttons. This results in a straight drop earring.
If the buttons are small enough you can use jump rings. I used the larger ones through the bigger holes and the small rings to connect them. This results in a loose jinglier earring.

jump ring pair.
Very,very cute! Yes I think I'd buy a pair. They'd look great with jeans, summer shorts, a sun dress, and lots of things. Teens might like them too. Good for you to use up stash buttons in such a delightful way!
I love these - great idea!
These are supercute. Probably your target audience will be teenagers, their moms looking for present for them and sewing mistresses :)
Thanks, I thought they were cute. The family thinks they are crazy. I think the right people will love them though!
Thanks! I was pleased to figure out how to make them in a way that doesn't ruin the button.
Yep, I was hoping the bright colors would appeal to teens. I'm excited to see how people respond to them.
Great idea and they look so pretty!
Thanks. I was tickled with how they turned out!
These are super cool!!
Thanks. I had fun with them.
