Obviously, I bought the whole box.
Fast forward a few months, I've been sharing a studio with Marc Simard of www.broundoor.etsy.com for awhile, watching him work with leather every day, and it hits me...I need to combine these buckles with leather! I wanted another luxurious yet earthy element to add to the design, and I'd been dreaming about geology while designing my fall collection, so agate became the obvious choice.
Marc ended up helping me out with figuring out the best way to attach the leather to the buckles (metal studs, applied with his press) and the design developed from there with the addition of the agate and chain. The design is finished off with a chunky chain at the neck, a lobster clasp closure and a small wooden logo charm at the back neck.
All the leather in this design is offcut and recycled leather (scrap leather from the footwear and furniture industries, or recycled from vintage clothing/bags). More colour combos now in the shop!
Since the main component of this design is vintage deadstock, this design will be made in limited quantities, and cannot be made in gold tone since I only have the silver tone available to me.
