Leather Jewelry
Part 1 of 2

It seems such a waste to throw old leather or even leather scraps away. So this post is not just about the creative artisans who upcycle the material but who also make it super attractive for women to wear as jewelry. There are so many talented artisans out there who are able to come up with green designs. Here are some of my favorites.

First up is Jonquiljuice on Etsy with her feminine red leather flower choker. I love how she carefully layers the flower shapes and completes designs with metal and focal components.

Her brown leather ring is another example of how it is possible to make what is really just old leather into something so pretty. A creative genius!

Vietto's shop on Etsy showcases this leather lace necklace made from an old leather jacket. The holes were cut free-hand ie without a pattern. A truly unique piece! This Finnish designer makes all sorts of craft items.

OnceAgainSam on Etsy also goes with the layered look for earrings, playing with geometric shapes like her colorful number here.

Her reversible leather studded bracelet is certainly clever too! She is an interior designer who collects and repurposes old leather upholstery samples and other such material which would have gone to the city dump otherwise.
