  1. Take the Create Recklessly Faux Leather and cut it into your desired leaf shape. Once you have your desired shape, trace it on the back of the strip of leather to create a second mirror image. Cut out the second shape.
  2. Place them back to back and use the Toho Demi Rounds to Bead Embroider a Basic Beaded Edge all the way around the leaf. Tie off and weave in your thread.
  3. Punch a hole near the top tip of the earring.
  4. Open one 8mm jump ring and thread it through the hole you punched at the top of the leaf. Close the jump ring.
  5. Open one 5mm jump ring and attach it to the 8mm jump ring and to one earring hook. Close the jump ring.
