30 Contemporary ProjectsBook - 2010
Jewelers who haven’t yet added leather to their arsenal can look right here to see what they’re missing! Not only is it colorful, versatile, pliant, and elegant, but leather works beautifully as both a component part (combined with metal findings or beads) and as the single featured material.
These 30 stunning projects, made from leather and fur, have a refined and pretty style that’s neither camp crafts nor biker tough. They cover the entire range of ornamentation: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, cuffs, rings, hair accessories and a brooch. Best of all, the basic skills are easy to master, and 75 how-to illustrations guide readers through the construction. A gallery of work by international artists is included for extra inspiration.
