Here’s some of my custom tooled leather keychains. Custom orders are possible, add your name etc..
Leather dog collars with Irish in mind are these custom tooled handmade 1″ wide with 5/8″ stylish tapered ends collars. These are the latest leather bounty from acrossleather . Made for 3 very special Blenheim Spaniels.
Materials are European vegetable tanned leather, vegetable tanned leather, waxed linen thread, barge glue, beeswax, acrylic paints, solid brass heel bar buckle with a brilliant nickle plating and a poly coat top finish for years of beauty and service 😉
It shows wonderfully and comes in at 3/8″ thick. Strong, gorgeous tooling and meticulous detail.
Here’s a Celtic type design hand tooled and finished in black and yellow highlights. Hand stitched and meticulously created.
Here’s custom tooled floral key chain made from saddle skirting leather. It’s a robust 13 oz. Hand dyed and poly top finished for years of beauty and service. See more at acrossleather.com
“Across Leather” Studio brings to you a step by step pictorial of a leather dog collar being brought to life.
Today I’ll finish the tooling, accomplish a stitch groove for the waxed linen thread and maybe spray some color to this piece. The stitch groove allows the thread to be approximately the same level as the leather to avoid any premature snags and add to it’s longevity.
The excited Miss Daisy took delivery of her first “Across Leather” custom tooled leather dog collar.
The oak leaves are arms to chairs when I was sub-contracting some tooled leather work from Northwest Native Designs owned by Ernie Apodaca.
