So, while making collars one day, I was also thinking of what to get various people for Christmas this year. My niece popped into my head because she all wants to be a tattoo artist one day, but she admitted to not having a lick of drawing ability, and she was kind of bummed about it. So, I told her she could come over and have a-go at helping us make some collars. She was excited.
So, I'm thinking "What can I get her for Christmas???"
Then it occurs to me. A LEATHER BRACELET. DUH. What 18 year old teenage punk wouldn't want one of these??
Then it dawns on me: More people may want these! And I've got different colored latigo leathers (thank you, Lisa!) and now we can also line in a nice, thick-ish, soft, suede, too! And we'll have different colored suedes soon (thank you again, Lisa!).
Anyway, so I order some snaps, and BAM! we made this for my niece last night. It's 1 1/2" wide, but we can make them, probably, down to a 3/4" width. This is entirely too wide for my small wrist, but my husband modeled it well.
Only because it was too big for me. I hope my niece likes it! We went a little wild on the blingy side, but I think it still rocks.
And!!! To think, matching dog collars or vice versa, match a bracelet up to a dog collar.
Whatchu think? We do various spot/concho patterns. There wouldn't be as much room to work with on them as there is on a dog collar, but still!
My hub modeling it.
And here it is by itself:
Now, this was the first bracelet we have ever made, so there are minor imperfections I am noticing looking at it, but I am quite pleased with it.
