Quick and chic, these earrings are a great staple wardrobe accessory. They’re easy to make without giving up quality. This project is perfect for a bit of scrap leather from another project or from the grab bag you couldn’t resist at the craft store!
– leather – thinner is better
– jump rings
– ear hooks (or studs with loops like I used)
– knife with sharp blade
Cut 6 triangles from the leather. These are 1 inch tall and 1 inch wide. I marked off a 1 inch wide strip, then marked ever half inch. Connect the dots, then cut the triangles. You can use the knife or a pair of scissors (scissors aren’t best practice but these are small so it’s not that important.)
Mark a dot half way across the triangles. Cut a tiny slit over the dot.
Loop a jump ring through the hole in each triangle.
Connect the triangles into strings of three, then hook each onto an earring.
