Make a pair of silver and gold earrings using materials from The Maker’s Movement. #sponsored @jointhemakersmovement

I really enjoy making earrings. Some of the easiest earrings to make use a die to cut the shape. The silver and gold earrings above are made using a die and other materials from The Maker’s Movement. I like the combination of silver and gold especially when you can’t decide which color of metal works with your outfit the best. Or if you are going to wear different metals for other jewelry pieces, these earrings can pull it all together.

Making earrings with your personal die cutting machine is a current hot topic in crafting. I’ve done it before [see post here], but these leaf-like earrings are my newest design. This version of earrings was made using The Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. It really made making them and attaching the layers together easy. The tacky glue dries quickly but leaves enough time to maneuver the position of the layers.
I absolutely love the detail in these earrings. I wasn’t sure if I could emboss faux leather but I gave it a try and it turned out fabulously! I stamped an image onto the faux leather, applied embossing powder, and then heat set it. I was really impressed! I actually ended up making two pairs of earrings. Check out the how-to video below.
