This Week in Leather

Morning robins in the backyard made me realize that a "Robins in Love" bag would be the perfect addition to the Leather Shop this coming month, what with winter coming and Robins being the sign of spring I always looked for growing up in Pittsburgh...

But then I realized it would be so so so so special if I inset a piece of robin's egg blue turquoise (Royston turquoise, beloved among collectors!) in a NEST.

The soft leather portion of the bag will be black and the back is going to say 'nurture'.

I am ridiculously excited about this special bag!!!

And a bird skull clutch!!!

Aaaaaand a Latigo Love cuff inset with a piece of perfect autumn Condor Agate and a generous amount of decorative cuts.
This one is going to be a doozy!!!

I am off to continue working, just had to share!!!

Oh oh oh oh!!!! I need to start stone searching, your lapidary additions are such an inspiration!!! Did you paint the flower that lovely shade of white, or is that just how the leather is? (swoony swoon either way!)
