You can't call us hide-bound - but we're hell-bent for leather!

s36317 Findings - 5 mm Round Leather -  Circle Hook Clasp - Antique Copper (1)
When we first spotted these findings and this new 5 mm leather when we were in Tucson this year, we knew we had to pick it up!
The 5 mm round leather looked like it had lots of design possibilities, and the new findings were way-cool. I'm so glad I snapped a few pics with my cell phone of some completed bracelets - otherwise, by the time our shipment arrived, I would have been looking at this Circle Hook clasp and scratching my head.

s35382 Stringing - 5 mm Round Leather Cord - Sea Grass (Inch)It really is a clever design. Just cut a length of leather, twice the length of the bracelet, fold in half, glue the ends into the cup on the finding, and when dry, slide the loop through the circle and hook onto the hook to close. Simple. Elegant. Brilliant. And available in different metals. And you'll be wanting some leather to go with that too! Also, many colours to choose from. This is fine quality Italian cowhide, same as the Regaliz leather. Very nice. Mucho bella.

s36201 Stringing - 5 mm Hollow Core Round Leather Cord - Ruby Boa (Inch)And this patterned, hollow core leather has some great design potential - thread some memory wire or stiff, stainless steel wire through it and it will hold the shape of the wire. Great for bangle bracelets or cuff bracelets.
s36318 Findings - Regaliz -  Crystal Ends - Light Siam (Pair)In fact, you can finish the ends of your cuff bracelet with these fabulous Crystal Ends. These ends take two strands of 5 mm round leather. Use the hollow core leather and memory wire with the crystal ends to make this fabulous beauty!

s36283 Stringing - 1.5 mm Leather Cord - Moroccan Red (1 Metre)In fact - this week's update is leather crazy! We have 1.5 mm leather cord - really super nice stuff - great texture and environmentally s36215 Leather Lacing - 5 mm Flat Leather Lacing - Very Violet (1 meter)friendly dyes, and 5 mm flat leather lacing - deer hide. Silky soft!

s36199 Stringing -  Regaliz Licorice Leather - Lime Lizard (Inch)Oh, and one new colour of the Regaliz 10 mm leather. Lime Lizard!

s35984 Phone Case -  Dimple - Iphone 4/4S - Black (1)Digressing from the leather for a minute - if you want to bling up your iPhone, but are afraid you can't glue your crystals in a straight line - try the "Dimple" Iphone case. It has indentations for you to put your dab of glue into, and then pop the crystal in - and bingo! s35986 Booklet -  Dimple - Blingable Phone Case Patterns -  (1)s36398 Swarovski Elements - Rhinestones - PP 17 Chaton (Article 1028) (Foiled) - Crystal AB (1 gram)Professional looking bling! We even have a pattern book, in case you are stumped for ideas!
The dimples are sized for PP 17 rhinestones - so we got you a selection of those too!
And if you'd rather bead it than bling it - we have a stitchable version too!

s36198 Adhesive -  Crystal Ninja - Master Glue Kit (1)If precision gluing (i.e. covering your car with rhinestones!) is your goal, we've added syringes and needle tips and even a glue kit, with everything you need to get gluing.
