Yes, leather in the summer!

I created the pattern and pierced the pendant to look like a piece from the Art Nouveau movement.  Although I like and get inspired by all the art movements, Art Nouveau is one of my favorites with the second being the Renaissance period.

This is a close up of the Art Nouveau inspired brass pendant which I designed and pierced.  The materials for this piece are: Kidd leather, raw cut faceted amethyst, brass, silk thread and freshwater light rose pearls.
