natural chic leather earrings

Make these trendy Natural Chic Leather Earrings from genuine leather and your Cricut® machine!
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 2

Click 'Make It' in the upper right of your screen. Click ‘Continue' in the lower right of the next screen.

Step 3

Select ‘Tooling Leather: 4 - 5 oz. [1.6 mm]; then place your material, face down, onto your cutting mat. Place masking tape around the perimeter of your leather on the mat for an extra secure hold.

Step 4

Load the mat into your Cricut® machine, change the housing in clamp B to the deep blade; then follow the prompts in Design Space®.

Step 5

Remove the leather and pieces from the mat.

Step 6

Carefully open the loop at the bottom of a fishhook earring. Slide it through the top hole cut in one of the leather shapes. Close the loop.
TIP: If needed, use a pushpin to open the hole.

Step 7

Now, slide about 1¼” [3.2 cm] of turquoise heishi stones onto a headpin.

Step 8

Make a simple loop at the top of your stones, then wrap excess wire around the vertical wire below the loop.
TIP: To form a simple wire loop, first bend the wire to a 90° angle just above the last bead. Trim wire to 3/8" - 1/2" [0.3 cm - 1.3 cm] from the bend. Grasp the end of the eye pin wire between the jaws of a pair of round nose pliers. Rotate the pliers towards you, keeping a firm grip on the wire until a small loop is formed.

Step 9

Use a jump ring to attach to the bottom hole cut along the top of the leather shape.

Step 10

Repeat Steps 6-9 for a second earring.
