Leather Wraparound Bracelets

something different from me - leather wraparound bracelets!

I've been talking about making leather wraparound bracelets for quite a while.  I really like them and have been trawling the internet for the leather cord and thonging as well as the bracelet ends and clasps.

These five bracelets are the first to be listed in my GroovyCart shop

I really love the simplicity of these bracelets - and of course I am testing driving one myself!

I've got more leather on order and can't wait to make more for my other shops.

Pepper Cat Jewellery

About 18 months ago we adopted a little rescue cat called Pepper.  I don't think at the time we realised how much joy she would bring us.  I blogged about her and posted some photos in April last year - if you'd like to take a peek look here.

Recently I spent an afternoon experimenting with our photo editing software using photos of Pepper.  Some of the effects gave the photos a retro appearance so I made one of them into a pendant for myself.  I've had so many comments and compliments when I've been wearing it that I decided to make a few more pieces for my GroovyCart shop.

This pendant is very similar to the first one I made for myself.  It's strung on soft brown leather cord. For more information please click here

This second pendant comes on a 24" antique bronze colour chain.  Again, for more information please click here

And a bracelet on pretty silver plated chain. The cat photo charm dangles from the last link of the bracelet.  For more information please click here

While I was editing the photos and listing them in the shop my little helper was on the chair next to me sleeping on the job!
