Fancy Leather Gaiterettes

I made this design for summer days. More made to be worn over shoes, it will even help to hold your mules if they don't have any straps. Really nice with crops pants or capry, even full lenght pants because we can see them. There is two straps per leg and an elastic to hold them under the shoe.

Leather Art nouveau Cuff

A project I had since a very long time, meeting the good persons helps a lot. Ok I use technology to make this cut out, because that simply can't be done with my scissors or cutter. I tried...but that was ugly and I'm experienced in cutting.

Its my idea and the rest is made with my two hands.
In leather, lined in nude leather, 3 buttons/holes for the closure.

More to come...

Discovered: La Patisserie- jewelry

This is the Fleur Cupcake ring made by La Patisserie. I found her on the front page of etsy. I'm amazed by her creations, its a so good idea, its funny, creative, well made, feminine and affordable.

Click on the title you will be bring into her etsy shop.


Leather Buttons Cuffs

I made a new design of mitts. I realize that I would like to continue to wear them inside, while working and the thumb is not practical, although it keeps the mitts in place all day long. I tried to shorten the thumbs, but that still anoying me.

There is a pair made of the same leather than the 14 buttons cut out gaiters I made recently, and another in maple brown. I will add more soon.

New Banner

I passed half of the day to try new banners and I finally use what my friend designer Steph did a couple of months ago. He totally understand what I like, I have nothing to say. Hopefully he will take some time to make me a little website.

Custom work - Aubergine theme

Today I took the pictures of a custom work made under the theme of aubergines. I loved to do this work, the ideas brough by the customer were differents than what I used to do. Firstly the flowers are overstiched of golden brown, something that I never though to mix with aubergine and the second mixed color is blue, for the ribbon. I suggested four differents buttons, buttons doing a big part of the gaiters style, but she choose to use two differents buttons, thats hot! I had that in mind a long time ago just because I love buttons and its very hard to choose them when I have something in mind. There is a mix of mother of pearl dark purple almost black buttons and silver metal and pale blue painted used buttons.
