As I mentioned in my previous blog, I purchased some fabulous leather from Mood Fabric in NYC when I was recently there. I finally got around to playing with it a bit. OK, I had a LOT to do in the store. All those beady purchases weren't going to get priced and placed on the sales floor by themselves!
I wanted to stay pretty simple with my first venture with the leather, so I envisioned a fairly simple cuff with a bead embroidered cab. I found an interesting druzy (from CBB, of course!) and went from there.
I LOVE the way it turned out!! It was easy enough to do the embroidery right on the leather, and even though this one was thin, I did not need to back it with any Lacy's; the second piece of leather for the backing gave it enough body.
Now my little brain is swimming in ideas for more leather cuffs. I had better find myself some more snaps this weekend.....
