My schedule has been nothing but hectic but i never stop playing with my long nose pliers and beads.  I've been working in a leather manufacturing firm for quite a while and with heaps of scrap leather laying around, i can't help but be in love with those too.  So here you go with some of the stuff i made with leather.

1. This was my first attempt with kanzashi brooch making. After hours of trying to shape the leather to make it look like a decent flower, im glad it turned out great! The earrings and necklace set was inspired by some jewelry i saw at saksfifthavenue.com

2. I wrapped a boring old wood bangle and plastic bracelet with leather and used black suede as lining. Rugby is my new found friend! hehe!

Hope you like 'em! <3333

Though I'm not generally a leather-wearer, those are beautiful! I especially like how you transformed those (probably very kitschy) plastic and wooden bangles into something much more elegant. The necklace and earings are so... unique! (:

whoa, wrapping bangles is SUCH a great idea, I've got a couple of crappy wooden bangles like those too, that's great!

If I weren't such a wooden-stuff-loving hippie, I'd cover mine too.

Those look amazing! I never thought of leather for kanzashi...
by the way, what are the beads in the center of your kanzashi called? (the slender ones) I've been looking for them

Awesome!  I especially like the kanzashi brooch and the matching necklace because they are very unique, and the gold is just so festive <3
