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.
Please visit my website, some of items from my online shop will be available during the craft fair at discounted prices.
Here is our number 4 bracelet of 50 shades of leather bracelets challenge.
The idea of making this bracelet came long time age, when I bought a selection of natural stones from precious and semi-precious gems and stones collector. It seemed he was not very attached to them and I really love such things, so I decided to buy. It was really spontaneous purchase and it took nearly a year for me to figure out why I really wanted to buy these stones.
It is not first bracelet that I make with the semi-precious stone, but it is 1st for this challenge.
A little bit more about the stone itself, as it is really interesting stone and anyone who is into such things probably read about the physical and mystical properties of Labradorite. All information that I found about this beutiful stone is widely available in Internet and I only number the most important things I thought worth mentioning.
Labradorite is an important crystal because it can help you with your physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
It’s a great companion crystal that can guide you in your journey of self-discovery.
It will work on enhancing your intuition and activating your psychic abilities. It will clear and balance your aura so that you will continuously attract the best kind of energies.
It will provide you with clarity and insight for what lies ahead for you. It’s also the best kind of crystal to have with you while meditating or connecting with your higher self.
Labradorite shimmers with the color blue. Blue symbolizes the beginning of life and the ever-changing nature of emotions.
What the labradorite crystal wants you to remember is that there’s always a need to become more trusting, faithful, patient, respectful so that you can be the person that you want to be and live the life that you want to live!
The unique thing about my bracelet - it is one of the kind, simply because I had only one labradorite stone and it will never be mass produced. This is what I love about my work.
We are pleased to present our second leather bracelet from series of 50 leather bracelets challenge and hope you will enjoy watching the slide show.
