Glitter Storm: A Custom Creation

This is my first post/submission to JMJ, I hope I’m doing it right! Anyway, I had a request for a custom piece from a lady who wanted a birthday gift for her sister.

She had seen and admired a piece at a show recently, but decided to think about it. When she did decide to return for it, unfortunately for her, someone else had purchased it.

The original piece is pictured first and the custom “copy” follows. Both creations consist of a wire base connecting scrap pieces of leather cut in organic shapes, with recycled leather strips, stone and glass beads, and vintage lace scraps.

To get the “glitter” effect and the iridescence, I use nail polish!

You be the judge, but I think the “copy” (I never completely duplicate any piece, except when creating earrings and even that is sometimes tricky for me!) is even cooler than the original.
