Jonathan’s Art

So you see my art and crafts all of the time, so today I wanted to show off my big brother’s creations!
Jonathan is a chef, but in his free time he loves creating unique pieces. Including, boxes, jewelry stands, jewelry, paintings, and carvings.
Sorry about the quality, these are all cellphone photos (like, flip phone, not iphone), but I hope you enjoy them!

This first piece is a potato box, that he made for someone. It has a matching recipe box, but I didn’t get a photo that piece.

These are earrings, which are almost finished (just missing earring hooks). They are amazing! (These are also for sale, at $20 each!)

This last piece is a jewelry tree (or just a piece of art). I don’t remember the exact dimensions, but it is quite large. (Also for sale for $300)

I hope you enjoy these!

Leather Bound Books

I have a few more pieces done! I did two new necklaces, but I also made two miniature books, just as little pocket books!

The First necklace is based off of the one in my last post. I’m calling this line my “Explorer Series”.

This second one is almost the same, it just doesn’t have the glass vial attached.

This is just a little tiny book I made. It’s just under 3.5″ tall.

The last one is my favorite of the night. It is a little leather pocket sized note pad or journal with a strap, so it can be secured closed.
It’s 4.5″ x 3.5″, which is a perfect size for your pocket or purse!

Playing with Leather

Here are a couple of fun new pieces I made!

The first is similar to one I have done in the past.
It’s leather scraps, bundled together to make a unique adorable bracelet.

The second is a cuff, made out of two colors of leather scraps, with an adorable Victorian looking clasp.

The last is my favorite! This was my first attempt at binding a book, and I turned it into a necklace, with a little glass vial.

Etsy!

Just a quick update! I am in the process of making a couple of pieces to sell on Etsy.
I can also do custom, if you’ve see something you like on my blog that you’d like to purchase, let me know, and we can definitely work that out.
I will put up a link to my Etsy as soon as I have those pieces up.

Also, I wanted to thank anyone who bought my jewelry or took a business card in Tucson!
Thank you for being interested in  my work!
