DIY tutorial: Making earrings and a necklace using recycled fur

  
Do you still have leftovers of fur from our previous project ? So do I! With only tiny scraps we can make pretty jewelry. This week I’ll show you how to make fur earrings and a very trendy necklace. 
 
 You’ll need:
Using a craft knife (X-Acto) – or with scissors – cut two small strips of fur each measuring approx 3-4mm (0.12-.15 in) wide by approx 2 cm (¾ in) long, making sure you don’t cut the fur hair. 
  
  
Next, do the same for the necklace, but with a width of 10 mm (0.39 in), or size needed for your ribbon clamp. 
  
  
 Here’s the full procedure for the earrings:
  1. Fold the leather strip in two.
  2. Insert end in the crimp cord end
  3. Close using pliers
  4. Attach the ear wires
And that’s it! So easy, right ?! 
  
  
For the pendant necklace, you will work just likewise, but using a ribbon clamp. Add a ring big enough to insert your necklace cord ( 8 mm (0.31 in) in my case). Finally, insert cord or chain of your choice. 
  
  
Please feel free to share your pictures of the earrings and necklaces you’ll make. And have a great crafty week!
