I like how this necklace came out so much that I am going to write a feature on it. You can view the listing for this one-of-a-kind item here.
This is the first of what I am sure will be many maple leaf leather pendants. I cut this leaf from a pattern that I drafted myself, out of vegetable tanned leather from the butt of a cow (which is said to be the finest cut of leather, btw). I wet-formed the pendant by hand and curled the edges slightly into a soft bowl shape that feels great to touch.
I then painted the pendant with liquid acrylics using a sponge to get soft transitions and textures throughout. I then strung the necklace on a voile chain. As I said before, I am very happy with this product and if it doesn’t sell, I know that I would be happy to wear it myself!
