This is the collection that I really progressed into working with leather. I was still sewing everything on my little $100 home sewing machine. (I was breaking needles daily). The metallic pewter colored leather was hand painted by me. The first in a series of hand painted leathers that I would go on to create. This collection also introduced the ‘2- faced’ fold clutch. They all had leather on one side, and repurposed fabric on the second side. I also started getting into some jewelry around this time, here I was desperately trying to recreate the ‘love actually’ heart necklace (that necklace is so good, right?!) I used all vintage components, I really love the outcome.
I set up the camera in my bedroom and a used a remote to take the shots.
