Hi everyone. I'm going to make some earings for a co-worker. She's actually my boss but she takes me to work and is super nice to me.
She likes little post earings. Something conservative and minimalistic. She has short hair so that may have something to do with it.
Anyways I bought some of those little post type dangle things to build of of. I don't want anything to dangly though so do you hav eany sugestions?
I don't need much just some pictures and such would be great. I can come up woth something on my own I just need some ideas to jump start my creativity. I've been crafting for almost 3 months now (all christmas gifts) so I'm sort of blocked for ideas.

I think these look pretty cool. And I think you could do something similar with jump rings if you know how to use a soldering iron. These are by Amanda Tate.

If you just get a few interesting beads and a packet of headpins, you could thread the beads onto the pins, then cut the pin about a quarter inch from the bead and use a needlenose plier to make a loop and hand that off the stud earring.  They would be interesting--depending on the beads you used, and very short.

You could glue cool little buttons on to earring posts. (they look like thumbtacks, sort of.) No dangles. Very corporate.

Thanks everyone! I found out that this person is only able to wear hypoalergenic posts and I don't hav any nor the funds to get some right now. Sad  I was going to give her a gift card to the olive garden but I wanted something to go with it. I suppose I'll have to settle for just the gift card for now.
