Braided Leather Collar/Necklace

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!

    She does great work, gave me updates on how the work was going, and my girlfriend is very happy with the necklace I got her.
