1  3D flowers: leather collars in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by jhenmason on: February 28, 2009 08:12:38 AM
the first leather projects I ever made (like 10+ years ago) were leather cuff bracelets. I did not like how they turned out the first few trials, and I lacked the patience to keep at it. Fast forward about 7 years and I got back into leather. First sculpted flowers, then flat leather collars. Then I thought...well I could put these two together and make sculpted leather flower collars.
I think they are gorgeous...but I want to know what someone who didn't spend hours laboring thinks:) I mean that I am not exactly the most un-biased observer and I would LOVE To hear what YOU think...please?
this is the extra-large sculpted flower. the predominant leather (top) but the underside of all the petals is a dark burgundy leather, which adds dimension and contrast, to accentuate the 3D-ness of the flower

This flower is slightly smaller but not by much, so I call it the large sculpted flower (yes, there are medium and small too) this one is done in red with a sandy brown on the underside.

Thank you for looking!

I've been amassing, trying, reworking and reworking some more...
I'm really dedicated to leather right now. I just love working with it, and there are so many other ideas I have that I haven't yet tried out.
here are some leather and stone pendants.
I'd really love to hear what you all think.

3  new paintings in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by jhenmason on: March 02, 2008 01:02:42 PM
sigh...okay, so after lurking for a few years and admiring so much wonderful work I have finally pulled up enough courage to post some of my work.
I have been making jewellery for 15+ years, but dapple in just about every crafty type art thing I come across (design, textiles, paper...).
I studied photography in college, and that's really my passion. and now I've started turning my photos into paintings.
here is my favorite, which I just recently completed. It is acrylic on stretched canvas. it is done in 3 shades of blue.
I'd love to hear some of your opinions.

thanks, jhen
