red leather earrings with reused jewelry parts

Red hot chili and tangerine with a bling from silver coloured bean(s).

This earring started about three years ago, something went sideways and I put it away in a box for a while. I do this when I loose interest in continuing my work at hand if something goes “wrong”. Then I can find the same project after a while (years) and start over and finish it. Like polishing an old artifact.

I buy my jewellery material from second hand or charity shops. Found this two toned red plastic necklace and liked the shape of the pearls.

It was easy to attach the plastic beads to the leather with small hooks that I made from metal wire.

How the earrings hang when put on is important, are they moving freely or should the earring just be seen from the other side? These earrings I made two-sided and movement is needed so that light can bounce on the silver coloured and red beads.
