This necklace started with the vintage metal perforated tube buckles I found while supply shopping one day. Vintage 1980s deadstock, dug up from a dusty box at the bottom of a shelf at one of my fave supply shops , I knew they would be perfect for something...I just didn't know what yet.

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 loved the colour combo of coral and grey.

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 coral 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 coming soon!

Since the main component of this design is vintage deadstock buckles, 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.
