Here’s my latest Hand tooled leather leash ready for this show season. If you were wondering where I am located the answer is New Castle Delaware USA. 60 seconds from Delaware Memorial Bridge.
This leash is 1″ wide and has 40+” of tooling, all hand stitched with edges burnished to perfection. Oiled, airbrushed in multiple layers of British tan finally a top poly type finish. All leather articles require an ongoing maintenance regime ie. A quality leather conditioner/dressing assists removing dirt, replenishing natural oils etc… I have to say that but this poly finish I use on all projects in addition to a finish that has a UV protecting additive is remarkably adherent. A collar that I just couldn’t get the turquoise color correct ut um…. 5th time was a winner.. After applying finish to one of the scrap yard pieces I soaked into hot water and scrubbed 45 minutes with a stainless steel scrub thing in an attempt to remove finish from collar. I barely breached it. I might as well say I used a hand-held grinder to it and breached the finish. I did this for my knowledge so I could know hands down I am bringing to my clients not just a unique leather item but an heirloom possibly.
Where there it is my friends, my latest leash of which I quickly admit, I am no photographer and shows better than any picture I can take:}

P.S. The leash has a solid brass snap with a brilliant chrome plating. Should anyone have further questions concerning this piece, having a custom-made collar, matching leash, belt and beyond drop a line to –> acrossleathercollars@gmail.com or comment here.

Have a great day everyday!

Who has the coolest Pirate belt?

Right now Skinny Dog Designs Jewelry is fabricating a intricate mold later of what I come to know as possibly the baddest Pirate belt buckle to be. By now a hundred(100) + hours has went into mold making through a CAD program linked to a polymer extrude machine possibly. Don’t quote me on that but it could be close.
The main buckle body will be poured from Red Bronze. Then the magic will begin to appear. Gems shall riddle this buckle including but not limited to emeralds, rubies, red garnets, pearls and diamonds. Rumors of gold leaf and silver.

The Pirate buckle will stretch to height of 4 1/2″ with a 2 3/4 inner section. Mermaids hanging over the main diameter floating in the depths. Super one of a kind creation!
I await patiently to be entrusted with the task of designing the baddest belt strap that will ultimately complement this fabulous buckle.
