Hand-tooled Leather Art, Made with Love in California!When you normally think of leather, I'm sure (like me) you think of rich earth tones of tans, browns, and blacks. But when Sunny (Allison Sattinger) sees leather she sees a world of colorful possibilities. See for yourself!
Big Peacock Feather Eye Necklace with Luxe Sterling ChainBeautiful isn't it? :) It is also surprisingly simple and amazing interact at the same time! And while this piece uses mostly paint as it's color, some of her other pieces also incorporate the natural leather's own colorations as well.
The Marriage of True Minds Rose and Turquoise ClutchThis beautiful toffee colored clutch purse is accented by three (2 on the front, 1 on the back) peach colored roses. This piece is also set with a gorgeous turquoise stone right at it's center, giving the hand-tooled leather an even more three dimensional look. But while this pieces is soft and subtle, my favorite pieces is big and bold!
Sun Goddess Heirloom Peacock Feather Half BeltThis piece is amazing! The contrast of the deep black leather, with the fiery reds of the sun in the center, and the deep blue of the peacock feather "eyes" is breath taking! I love the deep groves of the feathers and even the asymmetrical rivets near the sun. It is a simply spectacular piece!
