Video summary: Sometimes only a video will do to show just how sparkly and colourful these earrings are!

Fun jewellery for happy ears!

Hi, I'm Frankie and you'll find The Buttons in the fun jewellery that I create.

I have always loved anything bright and colourful, nature is a huge inspiration to me, I find crafts and being creative very calming and absorbing, and I've retained that spark of childhood fun - you'll see all these influences when browsing my Etsy shop.

After a customer contacted me with a request for earrings for her super sensitive ears I developed a range of hypoallergenic earrings backed with plastic posts. Now almost all earrings in my shop can be backed with these metal-free studs, or plastic clip-ons for anyone without pierced ears - everyone's ears can be happy wearing Frankie And The Buttons jewellery! Don't take my word for it, check out my reviews section for feedback from customers who have been able to wear earrings again for the first time in years.

I am always looking for new ways to improve my shop, particularly when it comes to the environment and sustainability. I have stopped using as much unnecessary packaging as I can and I reuse and recycle packaging wherever possible, particular bubble wrap and card to protect earrings during transit, and encourage my customers to do the same when they receive their jewellery. Many of the buttons I use are upcycled from my Grandmothers' button tins and I'm on the look out for more unique thrifted materials to use in my jewellery making!

New jewellery lines are always being developed, please check out my social media pages for news, updates, product launches and special offers:

Thanks for checking out my Etsy shop and I hope my button creations make you as happy as they make me x

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I have a wide range of styles from fun, playful designs for the young and young at heart, funky bold stand out pieces, to elegant vintage items for those who prefer their accessories to be subtly quirky! If you can’t see your perfect match just send me a message via Etsy and I will be happy to help you with any custom orders. Most earrings can be backed with your choice of studs: hypoallergenic plastic, surgical stainless steel, silver or gold plated, solid sterling silver, or plastic clip on backs - please message me for details.

Sizing details

I have included accurate sizing information in millimetres in each product description. If you prefer to work in inches then there are approximately 25mm to 1 inch. Most listings also include a photo of products in my hand or on a standard sized business card to give you an idea of scale.
I have tried my very best to portray colours accurately, but variations in computer screen settings may effect this, as will slight variations in colour between batches of buttons.
If you are unsure about size, colour, anything at all, then please do message me via Etsy for details before ordering.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items will be packaged to ensure they stay clean and protected on their journey to you, using recycled or recyclable packaging wherever possible.
All jewellery will come wrapped in a colourful paper bag and sealed with fun washi tape, ready for gift giving. I am happy to enclose a hand written note and send direct to a recipient, if all the details are added at checkout.

How do I contact the seller

If you have any questions at all, before or after making a purchase, please contact me via Etsy messages - either click on 'contact the shop owner' on the shop homepage or 'ask a question' on any of my listing pages, or via 'your purchases'.

Returns

Please note that I cannot accept returns of earrings, unless damaged, for hygiene reasons.
If disaster strikes and your item arrives damaged during shipping then please take photographic evidence and contact me immediately via Etsy and I will be happy to help, either with a replacement or a refund depending on your preference and if the item is one of a kind.
The customer is responsible for shipping costs for returns, unless an item is faulty. Please obtain proof of postage when you return a parcel and, if returning an item from outside the UK, please clearly mark parcel with 'RETURNED GOODS' so that customs fees are not applied to the returned items. I'm afraid if customs fee are charged this will be deducted from any refund.

Shipping

All items are shipped from the UK using Royal Mail. I will send an email to confirm your order is dispatched. Please take note of the delivery times in my email as Etsy's shipping estimates are too optimistic!
UK deliveries: Second Class (up to 5 working days but I find it arrives just as quickly as First Class and saves you money!)
Europe/USA/Canada/Australia: Standard International delivery (NO TRACKING - up to 6 weeks).
All other international destinations: International Tracked
Shipping upgrades are available at checkout. If you are purchasing something of value or want tracking information then please purchase a shipping upgrade. If you need your item express then please send me a message and I'll do my very best to rush your order!

Shipping Address

Please double check the address you provide with your order and send me a message straightaway via Etsy if there are any discrepancies. I cannot be held responsible for any undelivered items due to incorrect or incomplete addresses provided by the customer.

Hypoallergenic plastic studs & clip ons

Most of my earrings are available with plastic studs or clip on earrings. Feedback I have received has confirmed these are a great option for most people with sensitive ears or a metal allergy to allow them to enjoy wearing earrings again. As everyone is unique, and allergies are not all the same, I cannot guarantee they will not cause a reaction, but in most cases they should be fine.

Care instructions

Plastic earrings are glued, rather than soldered like many metal earrings, so the bond is inevitably not as strong. While every effort has been made to create strong and durable jewellery, I recommend the following care is taken:
1. Avoid pulling on the button/cabochon or fiddling with your earrings as this will weaken the bond.
2. These earrings are very comfortable to sleep in but it will put undue pressure on them so I recommend taking them out to sleep. If you need sleeper studs please message me to add these to your order.
3. Many of my earrings are made from waterproof materials, but prolonged exposure through swimming, bathing etc or exposure to extreme hot or cold will weaken the glue over time.
