Spinning Cork Jewelry

What is Cork?

Cork fabric , also known as cork skin or cork leather, is a high quality, natural fabric produced from thin cork shavings obtained directly from the bark of the cork oak tree.

This material is environmentally friendly, hypoallergenic, water resistant and stain resistant as well as easily cleaned and long lasting.

Cork fabric looks stunning and unique. Use it to make handmade bags, wallets, accents on clothing, craft projects, applique, embroidery, shoes, or upholstery. 

Earrings are a great way to start working with Cork, and make a stylish statement that you can wear or give as a special handmade gift.

Join Diane as you create unique, fun and environmentally friendly Jewelry with this versatile fabric. Enjoy!
