The leather earring trend is super hot right now and seriously so much fun to make. In this fast paced but easy-going workshop we'll make multiple pairs of earrings of various designs. We will start with simple leaf shapes and geometrics to get your feet wet. As your confidence (and joy!) builds, we'll level up the design to incorporate cold connections, beads, wirework and dangles and you'll also learn how to make sophisticated leather tassels. You'll also learn to make your own findings - French ear wires and headpins - from wire, which will help save you money in materials costs.

These boho leather earrings are light as a feather to wear so those of you who adore statement earrings can still go big but stay comfortable! Since you have the scissors and leather scraps in front of you, how big or how small you wish to make your earrings is completely up to you. This is a great evening workshop if you wish to still be creative but seek a relaxed, chilled out environment to work in.
