Some two hundred + rivets plus thick garment leather that I lined in pigskin and the determination of a true craftswoman and now I have cowboy hands!
Calloused, true and worked. I have a belt bag to finish today, a custom order for a dear girl and then I am on to silver for a tiny bit.
Goodness knows my hands cannot take any more rivets.
Would you like to see what all that riveting was about? It's available in the Leather Shop this afternoon, one of the only ones you'll see in a little while....
The Heirloom Bee and Flower Bag! If flowers were soft gold and red in nature I'd love to know where I could find them, so I made up my own and they are stunners.
Turquoise centers and two busy bees.
On the back are the words, "Know Joy". Make a date and get to know happiness!!
I knew joy while making this stunner and my heart fills every time I look at it: I hope her home will be one with tons of light and love... fingers crossed!
