Handmade Holographic Leather Tassels

I'm working on a really fun wholesale order of custom hologram leather jewelry.  It's one of my favorite leather hides I've found and is pretty rare.  I took some close up photos of the tassels I made for a bib necklace.  I love how iridescent the colors look in the light!

Abstract Art Painted Leather Key Chains in Progress - Womens Accessories

I loved how the order of custom key chains came out, so I had to make more for my shop! Here I am painting and preparing the leather to be hand sewn into key chains!

They're listed in the shop here:  shop.booandboofactory.com
Painting the leather is my favorite part!

The paint is drying and ready to be hole punched and hand sewn.

Lots of color!

Handmade Leather Key Chains off to Montreal!

I just finished up the order of key chains that are on their way to a lovely stockist Baba Souk.  These pieces were designed especially for her.  They are only available at Stephanie's shop and will not be sold anywhere else.  I'm really excited about how they came out.  They were a custom order.  The great thing about custom work is that it pushes me to create items I wouldn't normally make and helps me to expand my product lines.  Hooray!

Hand Painted Textile Abstract Art Patterns on Leather - Colorful Wallet and Card Holders

One of my favorite accessories to make are my leather wallets.  This is a new version, more of a card holder, featuring my original hand painted abstract art.  They are different from my pouches in that they don't have a button snap, they're meant to be a simple card holder leather wallet.  I love painting the patterns.  Soon after these beauties dry, I'll seal them and hand sew them with colorful waxed thread.  Then they'll be ready to list in the shop!

A beautiful mess.

The hand painted leather is drying while I pick out my waxed thread colors.

Still drying.

Now they're ready to punch holes and hand sew with waxed thread.

Lots of paint!

Pretty patterns.  My most favorite part of the process.
