Featured Item of the Day

Pug Earrings
Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O. Earring measures approx .5 inch wide, and has a hypoallergenic, raw titanium post (not shiny). Posts are nickel-free and cadmium free. Fabric buttons are made of 100% cotton, hand stretched (by me) over an aluminum dome. Photos of solid white buttons are included for size reference ONLY. Ruler and ear are NOT included. You will receive one pair of earrings as seen in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of your earrings, they will vary ever so slightly from the pair in the photo, but will be equally awesome. Earrings look their best when cared for properly. Please avoid getting them wet (remove before shower/swim), put on after applying makeup, and you will be able to enjoy them for a long time. Check out my listings for other super(duper) earring designs.

Handmade Omaha!

The Handmade Omaha Winter Art and Craft Bazaar is THIS WEEKEND! It's crunch time here in the studio. Time to get everything all packed up and ready for my favorite show of the year. I've been painting more gingerbread men than I can count. I can't wait to send them off to new homes!

Featured Item of the Day

Lightbulb Pin
Show everyone you have bright ideas with this fun lightbulb pin. Pin measures 1 7/8 in tall.

Rachel O’s wood pins start out as little sketches of my crazy ideas. I digitize each drawing, then cut and etch onto wood via my laser. Then the fun begins! I paint each pin by hand. This means that every pin is just a little bit different, but equally awesome! I love how the wood grain is unique to each piece.

Pins each have a one inch bar pin on the back.

I don’t take custom orders, but I do take requests. If you have a pin idea, let me know! If it’s something I can draw, I might just release it as a pin.

Please do not get wood pins wet.

Ruler is in INCHES and is not included- it is for size reference ONLY.

Red Wine Hairpins
These hairpins are perfect for evenings spent in with a bottle of wine.

Rachel O's is proud to offer the ultimate in couture fabric covered button jewelry.

Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O herself. The sweet softness of fabric buttons accents any hairstyle. I like to think of my jewelry as being tiny canvases, wear my art with pride!

Each button measures approx .5 inch wide, and is firmly attached to a quality hair pin. You will receive one pair of hairpins as seen in the first photo. The other photos are for hair and style reference as well as to show what the back of the hairpin looks like.

Due to the handmade nature of your hairpins, they will vary ever so slightly from the pair in the photo, but will be equally awesome.

Cat Boss

I inventoried like a BOSS this weekend. I counted all my fabric button jewelry and made new stock for holiday shows. It was intense, but I'm glad it's accomplished.
This little fuzzball better grow some thumbs and start pulling her weight. Until then, she is just part of Rachel O's in a supervisory cat-pacity. For a cat obsessed with all things circular (particularly hair ties) she knows that she can NEVER EVER touch a fabric button. I still can't believe her restraint. I think she's testing me by technically hovering above buttons, but I'll take what I can get.

Featured Item of the Day

Love Note Pendant
Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O. Pendant measures just under 1 inch wide. Fabric buttons are made of 100% cotton, hand stretched (by me) over an aluminum dome. Pendant hangs from an 18 inch bronze tone chain with lobster clasp. Photos of solid white button pendants are included for size reference ONLY. Ruler and model are NOT included. You will receive one pendant as seen in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of your necklace, it will vary ever so slightly from the one seen in the photo, but will be equally awesome. Pendants look their best when cared for properly. Please avoid getting them wet (remove before shower/swim), put on after applying makeup, and you will be able to enjoy them for a long time.

Featured Item of the Day

Black Unicorn Jackalope
Rachel O's Jackalopes are each a unique work of art. I crochet each one without a pattern so every sweet bunny face is different and has their own personality.

This jackalope has been stuffed and mounted to a wood plaque measuring approx 5x7 inches. There is a hole drilled in the back, so you can hang it with a single nail (not included).

Horn is hand sculpted from polymer clay.

Accessories and ear insides have been firmly attached with glue, but this is an art object, not a toy.


Colors can appear differently on different monitors. I have done my best to represent the piece accurately. If you have any questions, I encourage you to ask before purchase.

Late Nite Jackies

You know that the holiday season is upon you when late night jackalope sessions begin.
I spent the evening sewing teeny tiny bows for adorable jackalopes. I even had a custom jackie session via instagram. It reinforces my dream to offer a custom jackalope bar. Someday...
