I ordered a couple bags of scrap leather pieces from Tandy recently, and when I saw a piece of tan/grey leather inside I just knew it'd look lovely if I used it in jewelry.
These leather teardrop earrings are super easy to make, and you could really use any geometric shape! I just think the teardrops look great in a pair of dangly earrings.
I used a pretty variegated chain to add a little interest to the earrings, but you can use a plain chain as well. :D
