I have not actually embellished or worked with leather bracelets yet -- this is on my jewelry making to-do list! Leather working has been a craft for so many ages and it's exciting to see the possibilities in the 21st century.

Patricia Dusman said...

My favorite thing to do is embellish with a metal plate with a word on it.

When I use leather cord, I like to string beads on it, or lash beads or strands of rhinestones on, to mix the materials and create a pretty and flashy bracelet.

Trish said...

I personally have not worked in leather yet. It is something that I would love to do. It is an art that I don't want to see lost.

I think I would use hand stamped metal pieces to accent my pieces.

Tammy Stevens said...

Love!!! Fingers crossed.

Dawn Sangree said...

What a great prize pack. Ever since the leather bracelets came out I've been having a hard time deciding what to buy and make first. I'd like to layer up a few stamped metal pieces and use my riveting tool on one for sure but I'm also intrigued by the way you engrave the leather straps too. So many choices!

Patricia L Johnson Glass Art said...

Great giveaway package! I would love to win this! I have never used leather...this would be such a great set to try it with. I love the cuff with the rivited flowers...that would be the direction I would go in first.

Sharing on facebook,twitter...

Simone den Haak said...

I'd Like to use my letter-stamps to put some nice words on the metal blanks... and then give them to my best friends !!! Getting a present is nice, give a way is so much nicer ! :)

Alicia Coats said...

I love to rivet, but in watching the video, I think I'd have a lot of fun engraving!!

danielleRVT said...

I like riveting a stamped metal blank onto leather cuffs. So trendy!

Emily P said...

I think stamping the metal blank that could go on the leather is great. Words, names, dates...almost anything you can think of can go on the blank. That allows for it to be personalized or you a random design you come up with. People really like personalized!

Leslye said...

Really looking forward to working with leather. We have lots of antique stamps and tools for leather, but never tried it. YET!

carrie chagri said...

I have never worked with any leather other than thing to make necklaces with, however it has always been something I've wanted to try, I'd love to rivet some of my handmade silver charms to a cuff bracelet though!

Beth Salles said...

I have been loving working with leather. It is coming back!! I love using rivets either one big one or little ones. I have been punching several little holes in them and stringing either beads or pearls. Now you need to come up with the ones you can use as wrap bracelets!!! That would be so cool to be able to buy those from you. One stop shopping yeah.

Rebecca said...

I haven't actually tried leather work. I have had several ideas written down that I just haven't gotten to yet. I would love to do some metal etching to attach to the leather or maybe burning into the leather. So many I can't decide.

I like the leather cuffs with a design burnt into the leather itself. I'd love to try adding in metal or stones instead :)

JewelryByJaws.com said...

If I won this cool leather giveaway, I'd like to utilize my tools more. I purchased an engraver awhile ago and maybe used it twice? I'd like to use it more and these fun leather projects would do so. I'd also use my stamps more too. What I'd like to embellish on these bracelets would be wire. I'm a wire girl, living in a wire world. lol Thank you for having this giveaway and wishing everyone luck.

How funny I was just looking at all the leather crafts and thinking of what I would do with them yesterday.

I haven't worked with leather before, but I imagine I would want to embellish with metal stamping and riveting. So excited about the new products!

I would love to do embellishments on leather. I would stamp a scripture reference, such as: 1 John 3:16, on a metal piece and rivet it to a leather bracelet. Well...if I had these wonderful materials!! I have not worked with leather yet, therefore, winning this could be most opportune!

Neat leather bracelets! While it's my sis that's the most fond of leather bracelets in the family, I've embellished a few leather bracelets in different ways too, including stamping them and using pyrography. I've been wanting to do a bracelet with an engraved or stamped meta blank on too.

My favourite bracelet project by far, though, is my celtic braid cuff bracelet where I used two colours of waxed cotton cord to sew an interlaced stitch on the bracelet blank.

Oh my I would so LOVE to win this pack. I make medical alert bracelets and have been wanting to make some leather bracelets for those who don't or are allergic to metal. i've never won anything, but I'm always "hoping" Thanks for a wonderful giveaway, and your website with toots have been so helpful

I've never actually embellished a leather bracelet, though I do have a few I was going to experiment with. I had hoped to alter the color some with alcohol inks, but never got around to trying it.
