A x-mas gift for my wife. It's a journal cover, but the lacing is f***ed up so I'm gonna redo 'em.

Feleségemnek készült karácsonyi ajándék. Mind ez mind maga a bőrművesség meglepetés volt. Még nekem is. :D Hírtelen jött ötlet, alap eszközök és egy csomó idő kellett hozzá.

After the naughtiness that was the S'mores cookies I thought the next treat for the kids should be something a little healthier! I could have just given them a banana in it's skin and a strawberry yogurt in it's pot but they always have things like that so I wanted to make fruit exciting for them once in a while. This they loved getting stuck into, sharing together.

Silly me forgot to change the ISO setting on my camera today in my rush to take photos before the banana discoloured!

EDIT: I'm surprised to see so many others who like me, can;t really eat bananas! I haven't eaten them for years as they make my mouth and lips itch but everyone always thought that was strange, I never knew it was common.

A small belt pouch I made as a birthday present for my mother.

It's made of 3,5mm thick leather for the body and the belt loop and 2mm thick leather on the sides.

Dyeing the thick leather was fun but the dye stuck to my fingers for weeks because one of my gloves had a little hole. ^^°

Although we had a lot of work during the christmas preparations, I couldn't do all without some small leatherworking. So I did this over the course of two nights.
I choose the spiraling knot for this bracelet and did some wet molding to make it flat and comfortable. After that I did some touch up with black dye and edge sealer because it lost some color and shine in the molding process (I used pre dyed leather bands).

There are also some things I learned while doing this and some others I would like to try the next time I do such a bracelet.
First I learned to leave the leatherbands a bit longer than I did. That way it is easier to bind a decent button knot at the end.
Second I want to try some different knots for the beginning and the end of the macrame pattern because these look a bit to bulky for my taste (they arent uncomfortable though).

If you are interested in getting such a bracelet for yourself, feel free to drop me a note :-)

With this I wish you all a merry christmas and a happy new year :-)

Cheers :wave:

Selling for $70
Here is the link to it on my etsy: www.etsy.com/listing/163220324…

A beautiful Fall-themed pendant with warm, romantic colors! It measures about 3 1/2 inches tall (including the bail) and 2 1/2 inches across at its widest area. I used light and dark citrine and garnets for the leaves, and a tiger's eye leaf as the bail (and for the little balls on the curly thing). I also added a small, gold-colored wire into the twisted base to set it off just right =]

I've tried taking numerous pictures of this... in numerous different settings, and this was the only one that turned out. BUT I'm still trying! So hopefully I'll have a better one up soon ^.^

The Tree of Life symbolizes spiritual growth and wisdom, strength, protection, and connectedness. It is a healthy model that inspires the spirit and encourages hope in all hearts.

These are delicate, wire wrapped pendants that should be handled with care. Some of the stones, glass, or shells used to create the tree can break if handled roughly.

Smaug, completed January 2014 after roughly 600 hours. Image and design © Liz Heffner.

The intent was to capture some of the style and essence of Medieval manuscript illustration.

Stitch techniques: couched goldwork, split stitch, French knots, bead appliqué.

Materials: Japanese gold, gilt and silver passing threads, gilt spangles, gold metallic yarn, 100% silk (soie de Paris) and Swarovski 'pearls' on cotton broadcloth stabilised with canvas.

The inscription reads:

The dragon smote the mountainside in anger but did not find Bilbo and the dwarves.
