To make these sweet leather and coconut earrings, I tore apart an old blue leather handbag. The brown is fancy schmancy scrap from a fancy schmancy designer. This incredible, soft handcut leather fringe looks even better after being worn a couple of times!
These earrings measure approximately 4.5″ in length with two layers of leather, copper chain and round little chunks of coconut. They are literally “featherweight”.
They come standard with 1″ Argentium silver hoops (Argentium has a bit more silver content than sterling, and so tarnishes less). I use a very simple hoop design derived from a pair of “primitive” earrings I was once gifted – it clasps easily and securely through both standard and stretched piercings.
