hand tooled leather meets carnelian

February 16, 2010 at 4:54 pm Leave a comment

i normally think of hand-tooled leather as being for belts or cowgirl boots, but when i saw these beads, i thought that leather might have a place on ears, too.  the pattern reminds me of a river delta.  or maybe desert dunes.  something soothing in its repetition.

the lines on the leather had been dyed with a lovely orangey-tan, so i looked to carnelian, a personal favorite of mine (yay orange!).  together, they looked so great that i didn’t add much else: just a bali sterling silver spacer.  i hung them from sterling silver earwires; because of how they hang, they have a little movement to them.

they’re available at my etsy store for $22 USD.  part of the urban prairie collection.
