These swingy birch leaf earrings were handcrafted using premium tooling leather, semiprecious gems, and beautiful brass leaf chain. They showcase a mix of rich earth tones, which combine with the leafy chain for a wonderful falling leaves effect.
The leather leaves were made by me, and like all of my leathercraft, they were cut, carved and shaped before being dyed, painted in a warm metallic brown. The color is sealed with a protective topcoat. It’s a lot of little steps, but the end result is a beautiful and unique bit of wearable art.
The leaves hang from antique copper leaf chain, which compliments the color nicely. The chain is accented with semiprecious stone dangles that include carved citrine, carnelian agate, red tiger’s eye and copper beads. They hang from high quality shepherd’s hook earwires with an antique copper finish.
Weights & Measures: they dangle about 3.5″ total length, or 2.75″ below the earlobe. The pair weighs about 8 grams total, or 1/3 of an ounce – very lightweight!
