This project was a braided leather necklace with a sterling silver heart on the front. The customer asked for the clasp to be made to look like a lock and also requested some pearl accents.
I started with some black leather, braided. I then made tubing pieces to cover the ends, as well as fabricated a two-part clasp that has the appearance of a lock!
I think made the silver heart and added the special message on the back for the young lady who will be receiving this as a gift. I engraved that message in a beautiful script font.
To add the pearl accents, I made some sterling silver "rivets" that I then embedded into the braided leather and finally set with lovely cultured pearls.
Once the necklace was complete and polished, it was shipped off!
