These handmade earrings feature swatches of leather from the cover of an official NCAA baseball that was found behind Bailey-Brayton Field on the Washington State University campus in Pullman, WA in May of 2019. 

The baseball was found on a non-game-day and the wear on it (the Pac12 logo is mostly worn-off) suggests it was probably a practice ball.
