Suede Leather Earring DIY tutorial on madeinaday.com

Last week I made some Bohemian Style Suede Fringe Necklaces and along with them, I made matching suede fringe earrings! All of these earrings are super simple to make, but I thought they were so unique they needed their own post to share them.

I fell in love with suede leather last year when I made my Feather Leather Lariat Necklace. It is such an easy material to work with. When you paint it literally dries in minutes and you can cut through it very easily with a rotary cutter.

To add to my Bohemian Jewelry collection, I made three different types of earrings to go with my Suede Fringe Necklaces: Tribal Painted Suede Fringe Earrings, Painted Peacock Suede Fringe Earrings and Geometric Painted Suede Fringe Earrings.

Let’s go make some earrings!

DIY Suede Fringe Earrings




Easy Leather earrings

Make a paper guide using measurements on a rotary cutter mat. Everyone likes their earrings a certain size and length. Mine were 3 inches long x 1 inch wide. Lay the guide over the leather and trim it to match.

Geometric Earrings:

Cut a square out of a contrasting color of leather.

paint leather

Use painters tape or washi tape to tape off a straight line and paint one side of the square gold.

easy leather fringe

Cut out a small diamond shaped piece of leather. Using a rotary cutter, cut small fringe on the bottom of each piece.

How to make leather jewelry

To make a hole for the jump rings I used a small smooth sharp nail and hammered it to the top of the leather to make a hole for a jump ring. Lay each piece on top of one another and feed the jump ring through the holes and add your earring hook.

Cut two rectangles out of suede. Turn them on an angle. Paint two bean-shaped areas on the top of leather. One light blue one bright blue. Paint a green circle around the bean shapes. Paint a gold line from beans to corner on top. and lightly paint gold on the bottom edges. Cut curved fringe using a rotary cutter from top of leather to bottom. Add a jump ring, earring hook and that’s it!

I have to say the peacock earrings are my favorite they look great with the plain fringe necklace I made. The Tribal ones look great with it too. I do not like to be too matchy, matchy with my jewelry. So swapping the earrings out between the two necklaces makes each piece pop!
