The earrings are nickel-free and and recycled fabrics are used to craft on most of the products. They also make bookmarks and hair ties.
Karla has always liked pretty things and as a child, she hand made her own trinkets for dresses, jewelry and shoes. She once found a broken off fabric button inside an old cookie jar of random sewing and crafting kits and had the thought to fix it and transform it into a hair accessory. Karla originally started making button hair accessories as a hobby, then later, she discovered fabric buttons looked adorable as earrings … and so her passion to make handmade button jewelry was born.
