Many women of fashion now prefer leather, besides, the material is perfectly combined with leather boots or bags. It is very stylish, spectacular and original!
Starting is always better with the simplest. You will need to "fry" jewelry in the literal sense of the word. For the manufacture of such brooches require a frying pan, stove and trimming unnecessary skin.
Take plain paper and cut a flower out of it of any shape and size that you want. Then transfer the pattern to the skin and also cut the flower. Put the leather flowers in a hot frying pan facing up. When the edges begin to shrink, immediately remove the flower from the fire. Let the flowers cool down, and you at this time pass the bead on the hairpin. She will become the center of the brooch. Take an awl, and in each blank, make two holes, thread the flower onto the hairpin, twist the ends together. Now cut a small circle out of leather, apply glue on it, insert a pin and glue it on the reverse side of the flower. Brooch is ready.
In the same way you can make a necklace. Transfer the drawing to the skin, cut and fry in a pan. While the billet is still warm, wrap it in a chain. Necklace is ready. Simple and beautiful.
You can make and bow. From the skin, cut the bow. Fry, wait until the leather pieces have cooled slightly, and fasten them together. This bow is suitable for decorating a regular belt, bag or rim.

- Then fold the segments exactly between each other and use the hole punch to make holes at about the same distance.
After that, cut a leather about 55 cm long from the skin and start to thread it through the holes on the skin. As a result, you get a charming leather flower.
Tighten the cord and tie a knot on each side of the flower. Also, on each side, gently put on a golden ball. Now comes the bead and the ball again. Secure the structure with knots.
Cut the brown leather strips again, but this time about 10 cm long. Lay them on top of each other and re-make the holes with the punch. Thread the ends of the laces into the holes made and make the flowers, now they will be brown. Secure the necklace with knots, and put gold balls on the cord. Then, on each side of the string, string one bead and one ball of gold color.
