Leather Jewelry Flowers by Linda Lohraff - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

Leather flowers

I used a Sizzix Big Shot to make the leather flowers.

This is fun and easy to do and I used a soft metallic leather to do this.

The flowers actually look like metal so most people have a hard time telling the difference.

I wire wrapped the pieces together and put a tiger’s eye chip in the middle.

I used gold leather cord for the necklace.

I have found that the right type of leather for this project is expensive to buy so I don’t feel that I save money making the components.

The Big Shot will also cut out tin also but I haven’t tried that.

    Using leather cord with leather flowers is a good fit, and the tiger’s eye chip in the middle of the flower adds interest with the natural colors. You can create endless jewelry elements with these techniques, Linda!

  • Linda Lohraff says:

    Thank you Rena. I have made some faux leather flowers and made a broach. The leather is expensive as I said previously, but really is pretty.

  • Mary Anne says:

    Beautiful work with the leather. I love the textures and softness that leather brings to the jewelry.

    The Big Shot and the Sissix die cutters will also cut through thin copper metal sheet too.

    I have used leather from charity shop handbags (even a coat, once!) for similar results. Sometimes a good quality bag is quite cheap, because of a scratch or stain on one part. Chatting up the staff/volunteers can get you materials which they would otherwise discard as too damaged to sell. I don’t think my handwork is as good as yours….. 🙂

  • Linda Lohraff says:

    I really want to try the copper metal. I have it on my list! Thank you for the nice words.

  • Linda Lohraff says:

    thank you for the idea Pam. I have never thought about that and I have an old handbag that would be perfect for this. It is bright pink! Thank you for the nice complement but the work is easy with the Big Shot and just plain fun
