Feather leather

What do you do with a suede skirt that's worn and torn? Turn it in to earrings! Just one skirt can produce at least 20 pairs. Anyway, that's what I did.

Add a few feathers and some acrylic paint, and you're set, presents for all your friends for a year!

You can also add odd beads or medallions you might find at street sales, or re-purpose parts of other earrings.

For these ones, I also reused earring backs I had from old earrings I no longer wanted. I Just soak them in rubbing alcohol or vinegar and you're ready to go.
