Leather and seed beads make a bold combination in these earrings. Cheri decorated strands of leather from Leather Cord USA with beads from an Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blend. The leather is easy to work with and the seed beads provide the perfect color palette for her design. Switch up the colors to create your own take on this fun design!
