Metallic Leather Projects
Leather is fun to work with, and as someone who is a little obsessed with high quality leather goods, I’m excited to start adding some new leather products to my shop. I found a leather warehouse here in San Francisco. It was two stories and stacked ceiling high with rolls and rolls of leather hides. Basically, it was my own personal Disneyland.
I’ve been experimenting with using my Pinterest more and I’ve been pinning some of my newer wardrobe additions to a board to help visualize my closet. It made me notice that I’ve been a little obsessed with metallics lately. I even briefly acquired a Cambridge Satchel in metallic lilac before returning it because it was too bright and bulky. So it’s not a surprise that when I went a leather warehouse I was attracted to all metallic leathers. I planned to only buy one hide but came home with four in a spread of complementing colors.
Then it was off to the laser cutter …
I cut some flower designs as well as some cuff bracelets. The bracelets are still prototypes. One is a geometric cuff and the other is a scroll-like design I made with ampersands. Yes, ampersands. I love typography.
