Use flush cutters to cut two 5” lengths of wire.
Use round nose pliers to form loop on each end, with loops facing inward. Tip: Feel free to shape both wires at once.
Use round object (we used the handle of a hammer) to bend wires into teardrop shapes, with loops facing out. To close earring, pinch loops together, interlocking them. Tip: Hammering with texturing hammer can create a more permanent hold.
Cut 10 individual strips of leather from leather fringe.
Apply ½” of quick, clear-drying glue on one end of backside of each strip.
Starting in middle, fold strip over bottom of teardrop. Hold until glue sets. Repeat until you have five strips on each teardrop.
Attach teardrops to ear wires using round nose pliers.
