It's always fun to come up with new ways to bring leather and wire together, as well as ways to finish the ends. The design shown combines two lengths of leather with a central wireworked focal formed on the Now That's a Jig! The ends of the leather are finished with fabricated metal end caps, and the wire is secured to the leather by "stitching" with more wire. Loops and a handmade clasp finish off the design; all combined, it makes for a very wearable statement piece.
