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.

From time to time I start to get a little writers block about leather. There is only so much you can talk about as far as leather goes. I’ve pretty much covered all the ways of cleaning, conditioning and caring for leather. But today I happened to see a pretty leather bracelet and realized I have never talked about leather jewelry.
Now to some jewelry made from leather just does not sound right. Like, what can you make with leather that looks like jewelry? But actually there are many kinds of leather jewelry made. Often the leather is only part of the whole piece of jewelry, like a braided leather necklace with a silver pendant on the end.
Or in the case of leather bracelets the leather makes up the whole thing, or most of it. Cowhide and pigskin are the most common types of leather hides used to make leather jewelry. Almost all leather jewelry is made by making the leather into long thin strips, then braiding them together to make a nice looking pattern.
A leather bracelet or necklace can have many small strips of leather braided together, or just a few thick ones. It all depends on the leather artist. And they truly are artist; it takes a damn long time to learn how to braid leather into jewelry, I know I can’t! Some use different colors of leather strips to make a colorful piece.
Often they also add silver, gold, copper, nickel or stainless steel to the leather jewelry to really make it look nice and give it more function. The types of leather jewelry is only limited to your imagination. There are leather roses, leather picture frames, leather jewelry boxes and many other forms of leather jewelry.
So if you wanted to see just what kinds of leather jewelry there are out there, just google leather jewelry and you’ll find lots of them. Sometimes there are even leather jewelry shops in my sidebar ads I sell. If you love leather, than go all out and get a few leather necklaces, bracelets or any other leather jewelry and show off your love of leather!
