Jewelry Trend-Incorporating Bits of Leather
I am in love with the trend of incorporating bits of leather into jewelry. I especially love seeing bits of leather incorporated into soft and worn looking jewelry designs. The age of the leather makes for such rich looking jewelry that is casual, yet elegant at the same time.
Be inspired by these fantastic artists who are all using “bits” of leather in their work.
I miss having Sharon Borsavage on our Innovation Team. She does such beautiful work! I love this necklace she created using bits of leather!
