NEW LEATHER

Wow, I'm so in love with this new leather. I hemmed and hawed when buying it because it's stiff, and I usually use a more pliable hide but the gorgeous turquoise color was irresistible.  It turns out it's not any harder to lazy stitch through and it is giving this piece that I dissected new life. Do you ever have one of those pieces you are just not happy with? This was that way, I didn't like it on the black leather and the strap was weird so I knew it would be a redo. Like I said, I love, love, love it now. I think I'll have to order the hot pink hide too, feeling very inspired!

  1. I bought beautiful lambs hide from Italy,that had a metallic shine. I ended up with 6 hides. Because I fell in love with all six colors and well, I had to have them. I love using colors.

    Your work is incredibly, delicious, and I stare at every piece for hours. The blue does kick it up a notch.(if that's possible)
