Braided leather bracelets
With all this talk about leather items for Christmas, it would not be complete without some leather jewelry, bracelets and accessories. So I thought I’d write a little about a nice leather bracelet and accessory website called Leather Braiding by John. He lives in Spokane, WA and also has several guest leather artist that sell their items on his site.
Braided leather bracelets
John makes beautiful braided leather bracelets of all kinds. He makes his leather bracelets from four strands all the way up to twelve strand. He finishes them off with glass beads, silver, herringbone and more. You can also find key fobs, dog items, key chains, purses, coin pouches and lots of other items here, all made out of leather.

Well since it’s the holiday shopping time I figured I’d write some articles about all the different types of leather gifts you can buy for ideas. One cool gift is a shark skin leather wallet. Unlike a lot of exotic leather products, shark skin items are not all that expensive.
You can buy a good quality shark skin leather wallet for around $45.00 and up depending on what type of wallet it is. Yes shark skin is still considered to be leather because it comes from the hide, or skin of the creature. Shark skin leather is very durable and can take a lot of wear.
Yet it’s pretty thin, so it’s great for a wallet. Shark Skin has a rough, textured look to it but feels relatively smooth. Shark skin leather wallets are often dyed white, brown, tan and black. So if your looking for a one of a kind gift for your man, try getting a shark skin wallet for him.
I’m not going to recommend any one brand or place to get a shark skin wallet. Just google it and you’ll find plenty. Just make sure it’s REAL shark skin leather and that it does not say “Imitation shark skin” or man made shark skin leather. Hmm, now I’m thinking of buying myself a shark skin leather wallet!
I bet you thought I would never write another post here! No, I’m still around, just busy. Hope your summer is going well. I thought I’d share a news story with you I heard. Seems like with all the bad economy going on, people who farm alligators for their hides can’t sell them. I don’t mean they can’t sell them for much, I mean they can’t get ANYONE to take them!
The places that process them and make them into all those fancy alligator leather boots, wallets and purses just don’t have enough demand for them anymore. Even the big shots that buy the high end alligator leather items are cutting back. So it’s not surprising that the alligator purses and boots are the first to go!
There’s a lot of alligator farms around here in Florida. The guy in the picture above is one of them. He’s ready to kill his whole farm of alligators because it cost so much to feed and keep them. It’s just not worth it anymore. I imagine it will take a while before people start buying the high end products, and alligator leather is one of the top price items.
Once this guy gets rid of his gators he will freeze the hides and wait until the price picks back up. I guess only a few will come out of this good. So see, even the CEO’s are cutting back, poor things! They will have to downgrade to cowhide like the rest of us. 😉
One of the most beautiful items that are made with leather is jewelry boxes. Leather jewelry boxes come in many different sizes, shapes and colors. Because leather is so soft and flexible you can use it for very small, detailed items. The leather jewelry boxes here give you an idea of just how fancy and detailed you can make an item out of leather. Continue reading Leather jewelry boxes in all colors and sizes

I hope everyone had a nice Valentines day. Right after that day I thought about how you can buy leather roses and so I thought I’d make a post about that. I wish I had thought about it before Valentines Day! But hey, you can buy your sweetie leather roses anytime of the year. Now not all leather roses are made the same.
Making a leather rose is an art and is pretty much all hand made. Some can be crude, just loops of colored leather made into a strange looking rose. While others are done in a very beautiful way that really looks like a rose. The ones in the pictures here all are from a shop in the UK called English Leather Rose.
There are many here in the USA too, I just used English Leather Rose shop because I really like how they make their leather roses. Now I myself admit I don’t really know just what type of leather they use for leather roses. The leather looks thin, so I would say it’s lambskin or goatskin. However it could be cowhide split very thin. Continue reading Leather roses of all colors made for any occasion
