Overview

Jewelers who haven’t yet added leather to their arsenal can look right here to see what they’re missing! Not only is it colorful, versatile, pliant, and elegant, but leather works beautifully as both a component part (combined with metal findings or beads) and as the single featured material.

These 30 stunning projects, made from leather and fur, have a refined and pretty style that’s neither camp crafts nor biker tough. They cover the entire range of ornamentation: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, cuffs, rings, hair accessories and a brooch. Best of all, the basic skills are easy to master, and 75 how-to illustrations guide readers through the construction. A gallery of work by international artists is included for extra inspiration.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“If you think that leather jewelry is just for hippies and girl scouts, think again. The projects that comprise this book are fun, funky, and definitely fashion forward. You will positively beam when you see the designs, from bold, abstract designs to pretty, floral hairpins. You'll want to make them all in just one sitting! Luckily for you, this book details everything you need from beginning to end. Author Nathalie Mornu assures you that you already have all the skills you need! As long as you know how to button your shirt and tie your shoes, all you need are the right supplies. Learn how to set leather eyelets, grommets, and snaps, and how to punch, pound, and fasten. Easy to follow instructions and illustrations help you understand the process and get you well on your way to becoming an expert at creating leather jewelry.” — Belle Armoire Jewelry

“Mornu (Quilt It with Wool) collects imaginative and funky projects from a number of international artists, which use colored leather pieces put together with ready-made jewelry findings and fabric fasteners. Users will need basic leatherworking and jewelry assembly skills. Leather jewelry was popular as a counterculture craft in the 1960s-70s, but it is not often seen now. This contemporary collection fills a niche.” — Library Journal

“I love the projects in Nathalie Mornu’s book Leather Jewelry: 30 Contemporary Projects! Nathalie runs through the types of leather and the properties you can expect from it, sources for finding leather for your work, and which types of leather work best for these projects before getting into the details about tools and techniques. Armed with knowledge, Nathalie sets you on course to begin making the projects. Each project has a detailed materials list to help you gather everything you need to complete it. The instructions are clear, concise, and include diagrams to help make things easier to follow. I love the variety in the projects, which are so different in texture, weight, and occasion. Suede, skins, patent leather – the texture and color variation in the materials themselves leads to a huge variety in finished projects. Warm and softly delicate suede becomes a light and romantic necklace, fur adds an airy touch to a ring, and heavier leather becomes a minimal, modern choker..” — Craft Gossip

    Would not recommend

    I didn't care for this book. It didn't have hardly anything I would like to make or wear.
