Leather & Fine Silver

Hand-cut leather that was rescued from an antique store in Hillsborough, NC has been transformed into a beautiful piece that can be dressed up or down, thanks to its combination of rugged and elegant components. After hand-cutting each square, the leather was dyed, stamped, hole punched and sanded for an antique finish. The squares are connected with gunmetal colored jump rings, accented by gunmetal colored eyelets. Fine silver wire is hand-fused and connected link by link to create a hand-made chain, yielding a lovely contrast between the rugged leather and the bright, elegant silver. A lobster clasp closure allows for some flexibility in the sizing to accommodate a variety of wrist measurements.
