Oh Boy....

After a few different designs over the past few weeks, here is a combination of leather and turquoise meant to adorn an awaiting 6 inch wrist:



The design in dedicated to the American Southwest and the piece of turquoise is from Crow Springs, Nevada: a lovely sky blue with an unexpected yellow/red matrix.



Everything is hand done: the stone setting, the drilling, the stitching, the tooling, the painting and the tremendous amount of love involved in all these activities.

This piece will be in the Leather Shop this evening, happily awaiting the woman to whom it belongs.
