Leather Wallet with Turquoise—Dark Brown Kodiak Leather—Silver and Hubei Turquoise—Leather Wallet—Saddle Stitched—Ready-to-Ship
I'm happy to be combining my love of metalsmithing with something new—leather! Over time, I have learned new things and put them into practice. The result is a marriage of stone, silver and leather.
This simple dark brown envelope clutch/wallet features soft and textured Kodiak leather. Using tan waxed thread I've hand stitched the entire piece. The stone, set into the flap of the clutch/wallet, is a round Hubei turquoise, 16mm. The inside of the wallet has one pocket for bills, and two card slots. The closure is a long, thin leather lace. Wrap it around and tuck the end under, or trim it off at your preferred length. My makers mark—a "j" for Jolie Handmade Jewellery, the name I used to go by—is stitched onto the back on a sterling silver tag.
Kodiak leather is water repellent and very forgiving of scratches and scuffs. Simply gently buff the unwanted marks with your fingertip.
