- Decide on the shape for your leather earrings. I went with a feather.
- Prepare the leather by covering the back with contact papers.
- Place contact paper side of leather on your cutting mat.
- Cut your design using your Cricut Explore Air 2, or any vinyl cutting machine you choose to use.
- Once your design is cut, remove the leather from the cutting mat.
- Remove the contact paper from the back of your cut designs (feathers).
- Place your leather feathers on a piece of wood, laying them on top of each other.
- Decide where you want your holes for the earring french hooks and make a hole with the tack, pushing it through both pieces of leather into the wood.
- Using your small pliers, spread a jump ring open.
- Place the jump ring through the hole in the leather.
- Put the French ring on the jump hoop.
- Close the jump ring with the small pliers.
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 😉
**Placing the contact paper on the back of the leather it to prevent the leather fibers from sticking to your cutting mat and ruining it.
Now, go get creative!!
