I am so thankful that Jenni gave me a pair of these turquoise leather feather earrings, they are perfect with everything from jeans to maxi dresses. My hair short and I love the drop earring style, they are making a loud and clear statement! The leather was very affordable, now if I can talk her into making some tassel earrings ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Do have a Cricut but got stalled trying to install not long after I first got it.One ? didn’t know how to answer,haven’t tried again but certainly should.. want to be able to use it.Can’t afford to buy all the extras to use it but will bumble my way thru somehow.
      Great aqua feather earrings,look simple to make,just need to find some aqua leather to cut out shapes.

    2. Love your leather feather earrings. My hair is also short and all gray. Nor one for dangly earrings but worth a shot .Love the aqua leather. Don’t have a Cricut to cut with, will do by hand.

      Glad you shared this project. Happy week
