I’m still sad I missed Coachella. But there’s always next year!
And there’s also more music events to go to this summer. After this post, I’m officially locked and loaded on summer style earrings made with LeatherCord USA round leather.
For these earrings, I’m using 1 to 2mm diameter leather in pretty metallics. Here’s what else I had nearby so I could whip these up. End findings for leather where the inside diameter matched the diameter, Loctite Gel adhesive, ear wires, head pins, extra beads and charms, wire cutters, chain nose pliers, and round nose pliers.
First, determine how big you want the teardrop leather shape. Cut two pieces the exact same length.String some beads–these are large holed spacers from Tierra Cast.Glue the end finding on the end of the leather. Connect the two ends together with a jump ring, adding the ear wire before closing up the ring.
How long did that take?
It looks cute to add beaded dangles like this for a variation…
I love the hammered silver beads with the silver metallic jewelry making leather.
I’m wearing another pair that I added a beaded dangle plus a feather charm on the bottom.

See me make these earrings in this video, but first, you need to know I filmed this video live which means I interact with comments as they come in on my Facebook page. You know, just in case I was talking to my imaginary friend. If you’re watching the replay you can always fast forward to the 8-minute mark where I start to make the leather earrings!
