Try A Little Leather

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Leather can be used in so many ways; clothing, furniture, accessories and so much more. Do you use leather in the items you create?

We want to know what you have that is leather or has a little bit of leather in it. Tell us all about your item. How is it used, who is it for, etc.

Nancy from EponasCrystals says I use a lot of leather in my jewelry. The soft deerskin leather strips are particularly useful for finishing necklaces, like this turquoise necklace. I also like using them in bracelet cuffs.

Desert Dabbler from DesertDabbler said I love the feel of soft leather and use it a lot to make bracelets. For this one I drew a pattern and cut out a creamy beige leather cuff. I cut a strip of turquoise leather and stitched a turquoise and silver medallion to it. The result is a OOAK leather bracelet that feels as good as it looks.

Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit states at Design’s the Limit, we specialize in design and personalization of wood, glass, crystal, stone, and other materials including leatherette. In addition to being a more moral choice, it has a number of additional advantages to leather and does not crack or fade. Choose any of our designs or submit your own, leatherette engraves clearly and is available in a variety of colors. We have added wallets, business card holders, and luggage tags of leatherette in our shop and have received a great response for our clients. Leatherette requires little maintenance in comparison to leather and does not contain animal products, and is therefore seen as an ethical alternative to leather by vegans and animal rights enthusiasts.
