Candy Pearls


About this design:

Leather cord and pearls are always an unexpected mix...a bit edgy...a bit elegant. Love the soft sheen of these fresh water pearls on the black leather. They look good enough to eat!
Thank you, Erin Siegel, for your earring tutorial!

    What a great idea! Using this technique is a great way to make coordinating ear rings to go with other Greek leather designs. Obviously I LOVE ‘em! :D
