Leather Is My Canvas

When I started creating leather belts and bracelets I was inspired by my childhood memories from the times traveling through Southern Europe. Visiting with my parents the vibrant markets of Mediterranean villages and cities I discovered beautiful and functional hand-made leather goods and accessories. One day I got my first leather bracelet and I loved it so much that I have proudly worn it every day.

I always liked to draw finely detailed illustrations on paper or canvas until I got the Pyrography tool in my fingers. I used it on my first hand-made leather belt and was fascinated! Finally, I could draw - in this case "burn" - my visions in something wearable.
I became very enthusiastic about creating more and more items like belts, bracelets & guitar straps. I experimented with different tones of dyes and learned the techniques step by step while creating unique pieces.

Each leather piece is made with my two hands, no machines or stencils are involved. I carefully select the best quality hides for my work. The leather is treated with clear leather balm and beeswax for a protective finish.

Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher.

Feel free to let me know what you think.
HOW INEXPENSIVE HAS AN ITEM TO BE THAT YOU PURCHASE? SOMETIMES I AM WONDERING DO FOLKS VALUE AND UNDERSTAND THE EFFORT & LOVE OF THE MAKER WHICH GOES INTO THE ITEM. DO FOLKS APPRECIATE RECEIVING AN FUNCTIONAL AND UNIQUE PIECE BETTER THAN JUST A MACHINE-MADE MASS PRODUCT?
Feel free to let me know what you think.

Art On Leather * Leather Craft by Elke Nied

Dear visitor!
My artwork with Pyrography will remind you that nature is our life. You will find many burned in details of life forms on my leather belts & bracelets. There are leafy creatures, plants, bones and marine organisms.

Each belt or bracelet is an Original. I shape and dye each leather piece individually and oil & wax it to highlight and protect the motif. Every step of my work is a careful and intense process to create each leather piece to my satisfaction.

Each leather piece has it's own natural structure that also influences the final look and feel of my hand crafted items....* (read Additional Info below)

If you are interested in a custom made piece please contact me.

Additional policies and FAQs
(*) Each full grain leather piece has it's own natural structure which also influences the final look and feel of my handcrafted items.
My technique to burn-in my designs & illustrations with Pyrography happens spontaneously like drawing with a pencil, therefore each object is a totally unique item and a real copy of this is not possible.
