Leather Scrap Necklace

leather scrap necklace and earrings

… Or maybe I should call this project Further adventures with the hole puncher?

I had some left of the black suede leather I used when I made this gold stud bracelet in February. I didn’t want to make yet another bracelet so I decided to break out the hole punch again and do something that I hadn’t really tried before.

Things I used:

  • Hole punch
  • A little sturdier leather
  • Chain
  • Jump rings

tools needed

Also, not pictured here, jewelry pliers to open and close jump rings, ear hooks if you want to make earrings and some jewelry head pins.

First I decided to make myself a necklace. I cut out the shapes I wanted.

You will need to make some sort of plan of how you want the necklace to look like before you start to assemble it. Otherwise, things could get a little confusing and you will end up punching holes where there should be no holes. Some logical thinking is required at this point.

I used head pins to make the pendant a bit more stable at the top.

After I finished the necklace I also made a pair of earrings.

I think I like the earrings the most.
