Friends Leather Necklace

Today is “Friends Day” according to Facebook, as they are celebrating their 12th birthday.  Happy Birthday Facebook! Where would we all be without you ? 😉 Friends Day is a serendipitous way to introduce our newest trend setting leather accessory! And after checking the blog stats we are just 12 visits away from reaching 10,000 views. WOW! Where did the time go?

Was it a thumbs up or thumbs down? Although Facebook didn’t help us to share it to the masses, we still like them anyway. Actually, we like them even more today since we are calling our new accessory the Friends necklace, not because of Facebook friends, but rather because it’s like a couple of friends “hanging around together”!  Get it? I’m cracking up 🙂

Friends Leather Necklace is like friends (two-three different kinds of leather) just hanging around together.

We joined two different kinds of leather pieces together (sort of like friends) to come up with our Friends leather necklace. We start with a wide piece of heavy leather, then take a tool called an “edge beveler” and shave the sides to show a bit of the softness inside (everybody has a little bit of softness inside). Then a narrow strip of our veg tanned leather, which has been treated to the hand-drawn artwork by Kristy is laid in the center and riveted onto the wider piece by Dave (friends working together). We make it a fashionable accessory with a leather calf-skin lace and in the future we may offer it on a chain. To give it the authenticity of Kristybag, we brand the backside with our CG logo.

So we’ve got 3 different kinds of leather going on here, hand-drawing, a little bit of metal hardware and possibly hand-dying. It’s really like a leather friend party don’t you think? We feel this could be a very trend setting idea in the line of leather necklaces and accessories!

The Friends Leather Necklace displayed on the front panel of our “elizabeth” 24/7 wristlet has the same vertical design line as many of our “Signature” handbags.

We will be offering the Friends Necklace in various color combinations and of course no two will be exactly alike; however, we can custom make two that are very close in design style and color but they will not be the same, should you want to share one with a friend 😉 The next photo shows just a few colors and another hand-drawn pattern.

It’s our own original design and an attention-grabbing piece of leather jewelry! Think of all of the possibilities! Visit our website Kristy will be adding these necklaces as they become available. Let us know your thoughts.  Oh and by the way, it would be nice if you would be our friend and share this with your friends!
