the really thick stuff
I recently placed an order with Objects and Elements and threw some leather cording in my cart last minute. When it arrived, it was this really super thick leather, 5mm!! That's thick baby! I was surprised. Okay, and a little bummed. Until I took it out of the package. You would think it's really stiff- it looks stiff but as soon as you unravel it, it's surprisingly supple! I love it. It worked well with bracelets and a necklace design. I know, I went a little nuts and made all three of these pieces last night- instead of working with other components.... I had a blast with this leather.
Wire-wrapping the ends was easy even with a thicker gauge wire. I found this to be the best way to finish my ends, because I was out of super glue so I couldn't use these cool end caps that I have.
This necklace above is my favorite. That brass piece was meant to be a vertical pendant. But it had all these holes in it so I flipped it on it's side and started attaching schtuff to it, like this pewter butterfly and a Jade Scott flower pendant.
These pieces will land in my etsy shop later today.
