Leather jewelry has become popular once again—and I don’t mean just leather snap wrist straps either, but everything from earrings, necklaces, pins and even rings. As a medium it’s actually got quite a lot of potential and I am nothing short of stunned by some of the designs out on the market.
You will find leather jewelry designs out there, no matter what your style is. You might guess that there’s quite a lot of urban designs available, but you can also find boho, tribal, chic or more twee designs as well. Leather can be funky or leather can be classy. It all depends on what the jewelry artist does with it.
Here are some out of the ordinary leather jewelry designs. I’m sure something will catch your eye.
Based out of LA., Boo + Boo Factory creates bright and beautiful handmade leather jewelry. Creator Christina Aton is inspired by geometric forms found in science, nature and architecture, as well as by color. This leather ring and fringe necklace are perfect examples of what she offers her customers—bold, beautiful color!
Love At First Blush is just sexy. Sabrina Chin is the designer and she is draws upon her formal background in fashion design to create her leather cuffs, bracelets and statement accessories from her studio in Montreal. She is very much inspired by Japanese art, folklore, fashion illustrations and ink drawings. These gold-dipped Leather Feather Earrings are haute and I want them.
