I first started using leather in my earrings when I found some really cool salmon skin leather in Chile a few years back.
My local bead mall in Tucson recently had tables full of scraps for $5 a pound so I nabbed some especially decorative pieces in metallics and cowboy boot style to combine with my torch fired enamels
They are so lightweight and a breeze to design with by simply cutting the leather to your desired shapes with scissors.
Just a few added embellishments and there you have it!
Thanks for looking and hope you are sailing into summer like a feather in the breeze!
