Got a two piece blue ultrasuede suit from an estate sale, and it’s showing up in lots of new pairs of earrings. The olive “suede” is the backside of olive leather i’m cutting from a pair of pants.
These recycled ultrasuede and leather feather earrings measure approximately 4.5″ in length with two layers of leather, orange and yellow jade and bayong wood, with copper and sterling silver accents. Handmade 1″ Argentium silver hoops. Featherweight.
This incredible, soft handcut recycled leather fringe looks even better after being worn a couple of times!
I use Argentium silver hoops in these because i like the way they look (more silver content means less tarnishing), and because they’re secure – they fit fine with a standard ear piercing and the hoops keep them from falling out if you are wearing them through stretched piercings or gauge tunnels (which I do). They work with 6 gauge tunnels and larger.
