I just finished up my first little jewelry collection, Flora and Fauna.  Really excited to share it for the first time.



Here are all the bracelets.



Earrings



And the peacock & cherry blossoms necklace, my personal favorite. Cheesy

I have plans for adding a few more pieces, maybe offering multiple colors, but this is what I've got for now.

The jewelry is cut from leather using my Silhouette Curio and a deep cut blade!  I'm planning on posting a tutorial to my blog next week along with a pattern for a hyrule crest bracelet. Cheesy For right now, I'm just pumped to have finished my own original project.

Whoa! I love these. I don't know if it's just me/my own eyesight, but I love that it takes a brief little moment to discern the design in the negative space of the leather. It's like, at first I thought these were just beautiful nature-inspired abstract designs and then, poof!, there's a squirrel sitting there looking at me!!

I love the Gilded Lily of the Valley earrings. They're beautiful.

These are just fantastic, really. I love them all, but I especially want to steal the bracelets. Smiley

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!

Cool assortment of jewelry! I was surprised that these are actually leather--from the photos, I assumed that they were metal.

That trick of the eyes is intentional! Cheesy It happens to me too, and I designed the bracelets LOL  Thanks so much! :3 I eventually want to open an etsy shop, thinking about doing some local craft/trade shows later this year, and I've got a kickstarter going on right now, so it's always good to hear that people like my designs and want them. Gives me some hope. XD Creating can be so nerve wracking!

Nope, definitely leather! haha.  I've worked in metal before but I don't have the tools for it right now.  Leather is easier.

It is a good day when my hands are either covered in glue, paint, or dirt!
