"Saddle Leather, Lapis, And Chevrons" New Necklace by Dimples and Dragonflies

Yep, I Think It's Safe To Say I'm Going Through My Leather Phase! Hah!
And Recently When I Came Across This Old Saddle At A Local Farm Auction, I Fell In Love With The Weathered And Rustic Look Of Aged Leather.  Nope, I Don't Own Live Stock..Don't Own A Horse That Could Have Used The Recycled Saddle...But I H.A.D To Have It!!!!
As I Hauled That Baby To The Car, My Head Just Spun With Images Of Things I Could Create!  Of Course The Hard Work Began Once I Got Back To The Studio. I Had To Thoroughly Clean And Buff All The Leather I Salvaged.
 I Donno Y'all, There's Just Something So Earthy And Sweet About Leather.  It Simply Stands Up To Time..And Walks Away Lookin' Better And Better With Every Year. 
My Apologies For Going On And On About The Properties I'm Discovering About Leather..But I'm Just Intrigued With This Beautiful Material Right Now, And Will Work With It Until I Find Something Else That Stirs My Heart As Much!
I Hope Everyone Has Been Enjoying A Magical Week!
