 Leather for change.
I love the leather, smell, solidity....

I taken pieces of rawhide that I dyed, I stamped in the statzon the word joy, and wisdom.

Lot of fun making Clasps. In fact, one day,  I read on the blog Deryn Mentock that we should not forget that we were the boss and the metal should  obey us!! .. thus we could do what they wanted with it! and it's true! Sage Deryn!

Et voila le travail!!

the brass one, blue( shhhhht!!) "sagesse"

and the "joy" one, with copper..

i don't know if i will continue on this way but i like the result.. we can easily write what we want on it, the leather is protected and varnishes

A bientôt!!

Oh la la, no time for me to be sick that you've done so beautiful things my Sweetie !

Your necklace in the precedent post is my favourite, really love everything in it. The color, the oxydized brass and the beautiful clasp.

The art square is lovely too (as usual).

And your new bracelets in leather are so inventive... Where will you stop ? Never, i know. Always looking for new mediums.

I love you so much.

How beautiful my little French sister!! I've never really cared for leather jewelry but the way you have dyed the blue one and added the metal pieces I really love it!! How fun would it be to wear with jeans and a white tee shirt!!

Very beautiful artwork ! :-) J'aime aussi le cuir, même si je n'en ai que très peu fait. Tes bracelets sont signés.. c'est vraiment toujours aussi original, recherché et d'une belle finition ! Love ! :-)
