I've always been attracted to the colours and graphic style of Pop Art. Whilst idling sketching I thought, rather than cans of soup, what about a banana dipped in chocolate. It made me laugh and the sprinkles added the finishing touch.

 

Since making the first one, I've worn this necklace everywhere and it always raises a smile and gets lots of comments.

 

Each piece of leather is cut by hand and meticulously fitted together using my unique leather marquetry technique. To emphasize sustainability, I source recycled black leather from damaged garments that would otherwise have ended up in landfill. Only the finest sections of the leather are chosen and carefully cleaned for repurposing.

 

Once all the leather pieces are assembled, I stitch them together using my trusty companion, 'Gerty', a 1960's Pfaff rolling-foot sewing machine. Finally, I add the finishing touches to bring the piece to life.

 

Each order will be carefully wrapped and posted to you FREE of charge if in the UK. Please contact me for shipping costs anywhere else. If this is a gift and you would also like to add a message please contact me with your details.

 

I would love to see your photos & hear your thoughts.
