Turquoise Leaf Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Rita Hutchinson
Cut leaf shapes with Sizzix machine and Leaf Die, following instructions included with machine. Or cut designs free-hand with sharp scissors.
Fold top of leaf shape and punch a small hole through both thicknesses of leather near the top, to create a pair of holes for the jump ring. See below for back view.
Link wrapped loop dangles and connectors together for each earring. Crimp pliers are great for tucking in the tail on wrapped loops. For step-by-step wrapped-loop instructions, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
Attach bead chains to Vintaj jump ring, and string through the holes on the leaf and the earwire.
Add a drop of superglue and pinch the top of the leaf to create depth. Hold in place with binder clip while adhesive dries.
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.
