These leather jewels were created by hand by Fernando DaSilva for the “Goddesses and Gladiators” runway show in the United Kingdom last year.
We’ll post several more featured designs over the next few days.
On the runway, this set clearly stood out.
The earrings showcase many of the leather crafting techniques Fernando has been sharing as part of our Leather Works program.
The leather was coloured, distressed and shaped using tools in our collection.
From this to the final pieces. Leather is a unique material that can be incorporated into jewelry design work in many ways.
