Here is the second in a series of leather fashion jewelry.
This piece is one of my favorites. It is a wild side collar with African beads embellishing the rounded bottom.
First I design the shape then tool the leather. Then the leather is dyed in the raised sections with a very dark brown dye. I mix my dyes to get the color I want.
After the coloring is done I polish the piece with paste wax and seal it to prevent any water damage.
Then I make the neck piece and create the dangling pieces.
Hope you enjoyed this post. Stay tuned for the next in the series.
