These white leather feather earrings are made from soft white leather scrap, with copper wire and chain and faceted purple jade beads, and measure approximately 4.5″ in length. Handmade sterling silver hoops clasp securely. Featherweight. This soft, hand cut leather fringe looks even better after being worn a couple of times! Depending on the leather used (the softer stuff tends to this), sometimes the “feathers” develop a bit of a spiral, which also looks beautiful.
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.
