One of the things on my to-do list for 2015 involves leather-working, so I’ve been doing a little research. While my plans involve nothing as stunning or complicated as what this artist does, I can’t help but share her incredible work.
Absolute Devotion is a small business in Perth, Australia by Rebecca Hedges. Her catch phrase is “wearable artistry” and man, does her work live up to that.
This corset is what first drew me to their page, but the more I looked, the more I felt in awe. Not only does Rebecca have a beautiful sense of what she can create with leather, but her design skills are amazing. The intricacy, complexity, and detail involved in her works truly make what comes out a work of art.
Even if you’re not interested in buying one, Absolute Devotion is great to follow as Rebecca will post regular updates and progress shots on Absolute Devotion’s Facebook page, allowing you to watch the creation of such stunning pieces as this dragon corset below. I’ve learned so much, just by watching already.
For those of us who can’t afford the corsets, Absolute Devotion also does accessories, particularly chokers:
With the time and effort that goes in to making something like this, it isn’t a surprise that her one of a kind pieces would fetch a pretty price, but you will undoubtedly be gaining a piece that will make the rest of your wardrobe feel pale and drab.
For those of us not ready for the plunge into leather, Rebecca offers non-leather items too, which still have the flair and design beauty seen in her leather work.
Absolute Devotion can be found on Etsy, Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest.
