Fly Away Home

It's been way too long since I have made a sterling peacock feather - I had to remedy that yesterday:

The prescription will be in The Metal Shop today!

A short note on leather: you may notice there has been such a small amount of pieces going into the shop: I have been working my way through a small mountain of custom orders and making bigger things, like clutches and bags:

I will no longer be taking custom orders in the leather shop effective immediately, and the same goes for the metal: there is simply not enough of me for all of everything and I have to honor my tired arms and my desire to make what is purely coming to mind:

like this: a super long clutch (15 inches) featuring two wings, an inlaid cabochon, soft cotton lining and a removable strap. 
Holy Lord of the Dance!!!!

You must rest your tired arms...frankly, I don't know how you work with leather! And your peacock feather is dashing! : )

Your leather work is absolutely stunning! You must save those talented hands for future creations. Though I do greatly desire a custom cuff, I must learn patience and respect the time of rest.
Currently a left-handed designer, the right hand in a sling :) too much work
