Double wrap bracelet made out of 9-10 oz vegetable tanned leather. It is fastened with a button stud and secured with a series of holes and a small incision in the leather.
AHW is proud to have our first customer. Here is a picture of the bracelet just finished in natural, paired with my Snap Bracelet @ 2 months. The color and patina developed is starting to look so handsome.
Last month hasn’t been so productive at AHW. However I wanted to share with you some pictures:
This is the wallet of a 5th year architecture student who works all day seated at the computer. (Or blogger who can’t stop blogging, however you want to look at it).
This is a prototype ready to be stitched, the technique that I am learning is called Saddle Stitching. The tool that holds the leather is called a stitching pony, which I made myself last summer.
A few days ago I started a project of a heavy duty snap bracelet. It is made with 9-10 oz vegetable tanned leather. Here are some pictures of the process.
With an edge beveler (pictured above) I burnish all the edges, after that, moisturizing the edges with water, I rub it with that white rounded tool called slicker.
This being my first attempt to make a bracelet, I made the mistake of setting the snaps on the same direction, thus making the mistake you can see above. So, no bracelet with this experiment, but i got a nice body for a lanyard. It’s important to understand the importance of a process, and learn by yourself (and a bunch of internet tutorials) how things work, so, start again.
Now you can see how the snaps have to be the opposite way for the female part match with the male. It’s so obvious when you look at it this way, but hey, you learn from your mistakes.
