Fixer Upper Leather Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Rita Hutchinson
Determine desired size of earrings and mark the back of the leather to indicate cuts. (Pictured pair is 55x20mm.)
Cut leather to size with rotary cutter, against a straight edge ruler. I recommend cutting into a long strip, and then cutting to desired length. Do not use rotary cutter on desk or table top without a protective layer.
Punch hole at one end to attach earwire. (To ensure that the earrings hang straight, you may want to measure and find the center before punching.)
Add French Wire keepers to keep earrings securely on the ear (or on a jewelry display card, for sale).
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
