Leather inspiration

Post by kyhalfpt on Sun Apr 03, 2016 5:18 pm

Every year at the TB event they have lots of leather combos on display that look amazing.  I have always struggled with the TB leather--but always leave the event wanting to experiment.  Today I played around this morning and eventually ended up with a combo I can wear:



Anyone else want to share leather inspiration? Would love to see some more ideas.

I like this. I have a bracelet that is a bit too long. Need to try a couple knots in it.

Most of the time I just wear my baby dragon on my leather. I tried knotting it once, but it was too long when not doubled. Otherwise I liked the look of it though Smile

I love wearing my leather with a bangle wedged in there. I have not tried knotting my leather and I don't think I would.

Leopard and lavender!

I meant to take pictures of all the leather bracelets they had, but forgot. I believe TB Delaware said they would have videos posted soon.

Yes, they already posted one video which is what I used to make mine here. I asked them about the one that had the large dolphin pendant on it and they said that one would be included in their videos. I hope they post more videos soon--no idea why I didn't take photos of their display--it really was amazing.

I must have a go at something like this, it drives me mad when all my beads end up down one end of the leather Rolling Eyes I have rubber stoppers on the black leather I wear all the time, but the stoppers only come in black so they look weird on the coloured leathers.

Fab look. i see you add an extra ring to make it easier to do up.

Yes, I could never fasten the leather until I added a jump ring. Now it is very easy!

Beautiful bracelets and inspiration! I struggle with a few of mine as they have become way too long, so knotting surely is a way to consider. And I found this in one of the FB groups, like a celtic knot sort-of-thing Smile



I wrapped it around my wrist once. Two leathers are the "V" of the leather, you braid the third through them and use the fourth for the bead. The fourth was a bit too long then, so I braided it once or twice around the others at the end before putting the lock on the metal ends and then closed it on the leather end.

I love the way you braid the leathers :-)
