New Trend -- Leather Gem Wrap

This trend of wearing lots of bright colored bracelets and wraps is fun and addicting.  These unique leather wraps with gems enclosed between two strands of leather can be found on celebrities and in posh boutiques.

I've spent many hours the past month or so learning how to create these beautiful wraps.  I have made a couple of them that I'd like to share.  The first one is in my birthstone -- the amethyst.

The wrap is 23 inches long.  It can be wrapped around my wrist 3 times and has an adjustable loop for someone with a smaller wrist than mine.


The second one that I made is just 14 inches long.  It can be wrapped around most ladies wrists 2 times.  It was made with a soft pink leather and pink semi-previous stones, crystals and pearls.  It closes with a darling silver heart.

The possibilities are endless in making wraps.  I have so many ideas that I want to try!  I just need the time and resources to explore more of the creations that are swimming around in my head. . . .

Antique Brass Necklace with Custom Large Domed Glass Photo Pendant

I made this special antique photo necklace for a great professional photographer customer of mine.  It turned out so well that I'd like to share it with everyone.


  I used my gorgeous new domed large oval glass and set it in a brass metal setting.  Then using brass chain, leaf charms and a matching pearl, I created this awesome brass necklace that anyone would love to have!

It is a long necklace -- 30" long.   So, the large glass setting will dangle down below your chest.  The pearl sets up higher -- I love this type of layered necklace!

If you would like me to make a necklace for you with your special photo and matching pearl -- you can find the link here.

I can make this same design in a silver or copper color too!

I would be happy to create a custom variation for you if you have something else in mine.  You can always shoot me an email and we'll discuss your ideas.  Email:  LittleKeepsakesStudio@gmail.com
