Maker Angela Nason
The Story Behind the Fastest-Growing Button Earring Business in Australia!
The inspiration behind ANason’s Creations began in 2008 after business owner and proprietor, Angela Nason, became a stay-at-home mum to first-born son, Matthew. Angela is now a busy mum of three – Matthew, 10, Amy, 7 and Jake, 4, and since establishing her successful family-run business in 2014, she now enjoys international success.
ANason’s Creations utilises Angela’s passion for fabric and fashion and her artistic ability to create fabric-covered button earrings. ANason’s Creations first became a widespread fashion accessory in Darwin, Northern Territory and then Cairns, Far North Queensland, after Angela moved her family closer to home in 2016. Fast forward to 2019, and her high-end fashion and statement earrings are now worn by thousands of women across Australia and overseas.
Angela’s fabulous earring creations are now stocked in over twenty retail outlets and are also available online, with website orders coming in from all over the world, including the USA & Europe. ANason’s Creations also crafts custom designs for race season, weddings and formal occasions using other materials such as crystals, leather, resins, silicon beads & gemstones.
Furthermore, this up-and-coming business contributes widely to the community and is heavily involved with local charities, sponsorships and donations.
All of Angela’s fabric-covered button earrings are handcrafted from her headquarters in Mareeba, North Queensland, Australia, and she now has several fabric businesses supporting her business by passing on their fabric remnants.
Eco-Friendly & Sustainable
Angela’s passion within her rapidly expanding button earring business is recycling and reducing her carbon footprint. This is achieved by recycling manufacturing fabric remnants and having earring displays constructed from recycled timber pallets. She also makes her own shopping bags by recycling old magazines. Angela runs a plastic-free business, starting with all website orders and product packaging.
Over the last two years, the whole family has become involved in the business, with husband Greg constructing the earring boards and packing and unpacking the market stall van each weekend. Son Matthew has taken the title of stock control officer; he keeps track of incoming and outgoing stock. He also updates the website and handles all website orders. Daughter Amy looks after the mail room, order packaging and addressing the postage boxes. Her handwriting is becoming pretty good with all the practice! Son Jake is in control of postage box organisation after his sister Amy puts the boxes together. Jake’s is a rather important job as mum Angela likes to have everything all neat and tidy!
ANason’s Creations is a wonderful high-fashion accessory initiative that will have you looking fabulous for any occasion. It is also an environmentally friendly option that is good for the soul!
