I ordered five different pairs and love them all! I was worried that they might be a little heavy, but they're not at all. Super light and comfy to wear. Very unique designs and they arrived fast! Love, love, love!!!

The messiness of life inspires the most creative designs.

Messy.Inspired.Designs. started long before it arrived here on Etsy. It started shortly after I returned home from a trip to Australia in 2009. It was there in a shop called, The Bead Post, I made my very first pair of button earrings. If I compared that first pair to what I'm producing today, I'd say I have come a long way.

Once returning home from Australia, I went out and bought the tools I needed to make more. Then I rushed to the antique sewing machine in my parents house and pulled out the button drawer. If I'm honest, I had no intention of selling them. I just wanted to create unique jewelry to wear. Once I started making them, I just wanted to make a pair for every outfit in my wardrobe. I started receiving compliments on them everywhere I went. They are eye catching and still to this day I get compliments on all the pairs I wear. They go with anything and I am living proof of that. I have pairs for every occasion, even my own wedding day! Messy.Inspired.Designs. is a result of the desire to stand out with unique jewelry and having a pair of earrings for every outfit.

Messy.Inspired.Designs. also produces collage art. My style of collage art started as an university art student in a design class. As students, we were asked to produce a self portrait using magazines, papers, photos etc. I created a piece that brought me alive. (pictured above) I can draw and paint, but my love for old books, magazines and photography draws me to collage art. I always incorporate multiple mediums into my work. I'm drawn to earth tones and love starting each piece on brown paper. I love taking multiple images and making them into something new to tell a story. It brings some peace to my soul and helps me sort through the messiness of life.

Two different products. One shop.


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!

Thanks for visiting Messy.Inspired.Designs!

For me, the button earring phenomenon started in a small bead shop in Western Australia. The "Bead Post" to be exact. It was a cute little shop that introduced me to the idea.

5 years later, after selling in local stores, doing numerous gifts & custom made earrings, I'm now ready to tackle Etsy.

Button earrings are not just a product to me. It is a look and attitude. It is taking something old and putting a fun new twist on it. I've been told, "You sell the whole look, not just the earrings." Button earrings are part of my everyday wardrobe and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I love what I do...and I stand behind my product. I'm always on the snoop for new funky, fresh, vintage & antique buttons. The options are endless!

So, whether you LOVE buttons or just want to switch up your earring selection. Welcome...have fun...and fall in the love with my earring world.
