Happy Sunday, all!
I promised some more MAGfest vendors and this week I would love to direct your gaze toward the creators over at Detroit Leather Company. They have quite the selection of very wonderful leather goods. Ranging from masks:
To leather wrapped flasks:
To these absolutely gorgeous leather journals:
I am so entranced by the twisting lock and the pin locks on those last two pictures. Aren’t they amazing?! I can personally attest to the effective holding power of their flasks as well. If you would like to view their other wares, they can be found on their website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. See you next week with a new tutorial!
Happy Sunday, all!
We are back from MAGfest and I find myself with a rather nasty bit of con crud but we definitely had a great time! As promised, I scouted out some new and amazing creators, this first of which I realized I’d already met before. Apparently when I purchased adorable Calcifer cameo and Kodama in a bottle necklaces from Stephanie of Charming Little Fox at Anime Central last year, I didn’t post about it. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?!?!? I know! What is wrong with me??? So here we are giving her absolutely cute cutey cute creations a spotlight. Did I say Calcifer cameo? I did:
Lookit this widdle mean and scawy fiwe demon…
She makes all of these crazy tiny beauties by hand with clay so each one tends to be somewhat unique (which I love) so mine actually has a pretty teal background. The main pendants that truly captured my attention the first time around, though, were her terrarium necklaces like Totoro here:
This one looks so confused, too, like how did I get in here?
My little Kodama is just as tiny and detailed plus it glows in the dark! It’s these bitty details that really set her apart. Just think about the amount of time it takes to make things like these teeny sushi rolls or this koi pond:
Super duper cute, right? She also does do some slightly larger but no less detailed pendants like this lovely octo I would just love to put in my own rotation:
All the tentacles to hold you!
I would highly encourage you to take a look through her Facebook or Instagram for more examples of stunning clay artwork and once she comes back from a brief hiatus, you can purchase a piece on her Etsy shop. Next week I have some new leather wares to take offer.
