Leather Earrings, so Lightweight, so Popular and so Fun to Make
There’s something earthy and organic about leather. I find leather to be such a forgiving media. It can be cut, tooled, molded, embossed, dyed, stained, painted and coated into so many designs.
Leather is so lightweight and timeless. Artistically the possibilities are endless. There are many types of leather available. Veg tanned leather is my favorite.
These leather earring pieces were all made using veg tanned leather, a cutting die, then tooled, stained/painted, antiqued and finally, coated.
You can add wooden beads and just a touch of bling give your pieces an eclectic flair. There are so many videos and websites with helpful tips on how to get started into working with leather. Weaver Leather and Tandy Leather are two great places to start. WARNING!! Leather is quite addictive.
