Another year and another Black Friday is here. And it feels sometimes bigger than ever, some of my customers even expected that I run discounts for Black Friday. Unfortunately, this is not a case. I thought to explain why.
I would like to show my latest commission work. It is the leather bracelet with a hand-tooled design and beautiful Botswana pink agate as the centerpiece.
I love working with natural stones, they are never repeating themselves, their cut and patterns are always unique, which make them perfect to work with and create one of a kind leather items.
Agates are grounding stones, bringing about an emotional, physical and intellectual balance. They aid in centering and stabilizing physical energy. Agates are so universal and come in varieties. Pink agate improves the balance of heart chakra ANAHATA, just like green agate. If you have a broken heart, this could be a perfect stone for you.
Pink Agate is quite famous for its natural and magical qualities.
I would like to invite you to Farnham Artisan Market in the Vineyard Centre on Union Road in Farnham, Surrey GU9 7PT.
Local artisans and crafters are holding it as a fundraising venture for Farnham ASSIST charity (A Christian organization supporting older people).
I will be taking part in that event as the local leatherworker, crafter and artisan. I think attending this market is a good idea to get into the festive spirit at the start of the Christmas season, you will also have a chance to buy Christmas presents for relatives and friends.

Recently I have completed a new order and quite unusual.
The design and motive is the combination of famous Celtic Claddagh Love ring and Kazakh Shanyrak (symbol of strong family, and constant growth and development).
This bag could be carried as the shoulder bag.
Claddagh Ring Meaning
"The Claddagh's distinctive design features two hands clasping a heart, and usually surmounted by a crown. The elements of this symbol are often said to correspond to the qualities of love (the heart), friendship (the hands), and loyalty (the crown).
The way that a Claddagh ring is worn on the hand is usually intended to convey the wearer's romantic availability, or lack thereof.
Traditionally, if the ring is on the right hand with the heart facing outward and away from the body, this indicates that the person wearing the ring is not in any serious relationship, and may in fact be single and looking for a relationship: "their heart is open."
When worn on the right hand but with the heart facing inward toward the body, this indicates the person wearing the ring is in a relationship, or that "someone has captured their heart".
A Claddagh worn on the left hand ring finger facing outward away from the body generally indicates that the wearer is engaged.
When the ring is on the left hand ring finger and facing inward toward the body, it generally means that the person wearing the ring is married."
Kazakhs Shanyrak meaning
Home > Shanyrak - a symbol of the house
Often you can hear a toast on weddings "happiness and kindness to your shanyrak!". The visitors wishing well-being and tranquility celebrating the new family formation. Nova days "shanyrak" has more associative value, but before its meaning and importance were much deeper.
Generally , shanyrak is a wooden rim, reinforcing the yurt inside at the center fixing supportive poles - kuldereushi. The cross in the circle marks the perpetual motion in nature, the sun is a symbol of life. Four end points are sides of World: North - South, West - East. Ancient nomads could even use Shanyrak as sky compass.
Due to its structure, on the one hand, shanyrak was considered as the boundary between the top and bottom worlds, the other - between the outer and the inner space. Earlier through shanyrak yurt residents contacted the sacred celestial bodies: the Sun, Moon and stars. To attract good luck into the house and a talisman for the dome circumference of a circle hung colored woolen cords ayakbau with tassels at the ends, with a predominance of red or triangular hangers tumarsha with buttons.
