This daisy leather wrap bracelet is the newest addition to my collection of leather bracelets. I love the look of metal embellishments on leather, so was really excited when I discovered these metal brass daisy eyelets.
I needed some sandals for cooler summer days, I try to avoid putting on shoes until I absolutely must because of my toes turning blue… So these cover most of my feet but still let in some air.
Stamped leather belts are easy to make, here I made one for my teenage daughter, she asked for butterflies and flowers…
Over time I have collected many metal stamps, they are a wonderful way to decorate leather and give it some texture.
I love working with leather and exploring ways to decorate it. Here I chose the ancient technique of batik using wax and dye to make a colourful leather wallet.
I love decorating leather. This batik leather wallet is the result of my recent discovery that leather can be decorated using the batik technique.
I was inspired by photographs in a leather craft book from the 70s where someone applied paint to leather with the batik technique, when I saw the photos (black and white, unfortunately) I just had to try it out.
I experimented with different designs and colour combinations using up all my leather scraps in the process (and a lot of dye) until I had a surface I liked and which I stitched into this wallet.
