Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy: Corset Earrings

Designed to complement the Corset Bracelet from Christina Larsen’s book Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy. the Corset Earrings are a beautiful pairing of leather and wire.

Almond shaped bands of diagonal wire kumihimo braid structures are accented with interlacing cords of leather, creating the corset look. Just like the Corset Bracelet, you can customize the look of this design by experimenting with different colors of wire and leather.
