Often times when you first think about jewelry your mind immediately imagines metal. Whether it’s rose gold or silver, it’s something shiny that you picture. But why not try a different medium and go with something a little more earthy.

Here’s at Linda’s Art Spot we carry leather straps that would make beautiful bracelets. How do you imagine your leather bracelet?
Leather straps at Linda’s Art Spot
my venture into playing with leather making bracelets.
I was inspired by some of the work I have seen by Patricia Roberts-Thompson so I thought it would be fun to try playing with some leather and polymer clay. Here are my results.
1 far left was made using a repurposed leather cuff and a Stroppel cane, the 2nd on the right in back was a carved flower finished with alcohol inks and mica powders. Lastly front right I made faux turquoise beads and a focal bead using sunflower and butterfly canes.
With fall upon me and craft shows booming I probably won’t get much blogging done, But stay tuned I hope to start adding video tutorials by the beginning of 2015 if not sooner.
