Custom leather clutch


A while ago, a friend asked if I could make a clutch that somehow incorporated a acrylic earring she had. It took a bit to work out how to attach the piece, but I'm quite please with how it turned out. After 3 broken needles, I'm glad all my appendages are intact.

It was a lot of trial and error putting it together, and I couldn't quite decide on the material.






Lambskin, embossed leather, magnetic closure.

Trying to make the piece last as long as possible, I can't bear to cut into it anymore......
