New Stuff

If Leather I should leave you ...

It wouldn't be in summer,
Leather in the summer - it's so light and versatile

s32970 Stringing - 2 mm Leather Cord - Dark Violet (1 Metre)Not only is leather light and versatile, but it is durable enough to wear while falling off an examining table in the hospital and smashing into a wall and damaging the ligaments in your arm. The lengths we go to to test our products for you - knows no boundaries.
s32964 Stringing - 2 mm Leather Cord - Antique Copper (1 Metre)So, for obvious and painful reasons - I'm keeping this description rather on the short side. 

We have a simply scrumptious line-up of new leather cords, ranging from earthy, densely-coloured to metallic and glossy

s32974 Stringing -  Regaliz Licorice Leather - Teak (Inch)But the real star of today's show is the Regaliz - Licorice Leather. Regaliz - pronounced reg (rhymes with Peg) AH leez - is Spanish for licorice - those old-fashioned, real licorice ropes that s32980 Findings - Regaliz -  Magnetic Clasp - Pewter (1)have so much flavour they make your mouth pucker up. 

This heavy, glossy leather, combined with custom-findings, expressly designed to fit on this cord - creates a handsome and urbane look. Very masculine too - with Father's day coming up, assuming your dude is cool enough to jewel. 

In fact, my main problem with this Licorice leather was stopping making stuff! So check out our inspirations and then get busy! 

Oh, and we've done a bit of sorting and reorganizing in the tool department, splitting up the tools into Beading and Metal Working, and Wire Working, and pulling the glue and the resin out onto their own pages.
