New Additions: Magnet buttons and Magnetic Pendant Necklaces

New Additions: Magnet buttons and Magnetic Pendant Necklaces

The six-month mark for Pooka Creations is coming up in early September! I’ve already sent my pinback buttons to many areas of the world and look forward to bringing smiles to more and more people as time goes on.

Why are pinbacks so fun and popular? It’s pretty simple. Pinback buttons can easily be pinned to nearly any fabric, from thin cotton to canvas. They’re a great way to show style, share your brand of humor with others, and sometimes (with the right button) you can show a tiny bit of activist spirit without going over the top.

Popular items to adorn with pinback buttons are jackets, hats, backpacks, messenger bags and purses. I have also seen pinback buttons on canvas belts and suspenders! So yeah. Pinbacks may be great fun, but one inch buttons are way more versatile than that. I’m embracing that fact, and Pooka Creations is expanding into magnet buttons and interchangeable magnetic jewelry.

The magnets I use are high quality and super-strong. Buttons will stick with ease to all sorts of metal surfaces such as a fridge or a locker, and are capable of holding multiple sheets of paper at once; up to 6 full size sheets in my tests. Or they can just sit there and look pretty. A decorated fridge is a happy fridge.

And of course, those magnet buttons are 100% compatible with Pooka Creations magnetic jewelry bases, as seen in the photo above!

Starting From the Beginning

Welcome to the Pooka Creations blog! I plan to use this blog as a way to share longer and/or photo-intense stories. For more frequent updates, I recommend the Pooka Creations Facebook page.

The inevitable question: What is Pooka Creations?

Pooka Creations is me, and I am it. I have been kicking around the idea of starting my own small business for a few years, and now it finally feels like the time to actually do it. I have art projects and designs in my head that need to come out and make themselves known, and if they do not come out, I fear that they (and by extension I) will be very sad. And really now, who likes to be sad?

In this initial incarnation of Pooka Creations, I will be all about the pinback buttons. Also known as button badges, button pins, or flair, I “specialize” in the one-inch size range. My designs vary from geeky to artsy, fangirlish/fanboyish to thoughtful. Think of my pinbacks as tiny pieces of art you can wear on your sleeve, your coat, your hat, your shoe, or your bag!

The inevitable second question: And who are you?

To put things briefly, I am a twentysomething with hopes and dreams bigger than her eyeballs. So in other words, I am perfectly normal. I am a transplant from the northern US to the south, and have had my fair share of life’s bumps and bruises already. I won’t gripe or complain about them here, life is what it is. I try to believe that we are on this planet to live and to laugh.
