Game of Thrones Style Recycled Leather Necklace

Game of Thrones Style Recycled Leather Necklace

One of my weekend hobbies is to visit local thrift shops. I love to look for interesting original items and use them to make my jewelry.


My handmade jewelry is mixture of recycled materials and new supplies. This is my investment in greener future! :-)

Once, I found quite an ugly leather skirt, but who cares, right? :-) I only need the leather to make my jewelry.

The skirt had some, lets say appalling, decoration. My first idea was to through it away, but it was against my recycling principle.

The jewelry design idea came into my mind while watching my favorite TV series, Game of Thrones.

My jewelry design idea: A necklace for a strong woman.

Simply Gorgeous Steampunk Style Too!

Guna,

What a wonderful idea! You definitely made excellent use of what you stated was an "ugly" skirt.

Your necklace is gorgeous! I visited your site and saw more pictures of this stunning necklace. I love your use of steampunk elements, leather and chain come together in a well-balanced blended design.

Great job!
