No, not really Stingray Leather, just Stingray pattern. I’m all for beauty, but not at the expense of an endangered species.
I recently came across the company Endless Leather, and got some of their wonderful and unusual cords.
I don’t really pitch companies unless I really genuinely like their product. I will have you know that I turned down $200 rather than write a blog post about an entirely dodgy looking gambling website. Firstly it was gross, secondly I was pretty sure you might think it odd that I had certainly become interested in such things. Up until now I have always felt I should say no thanks. Anyway, I quickly agreed to their kind offer because I genuinely think the selection they have is unusual and lovely.
They are based in Germany but the power of the internet brings everyone to our door. They also sent me some lovely clasps. I went with this brushed stainless steel one for the Stingray necklace/bracelet:
They sent me several different leather cords to work with and they will pop again over the coming weeks as I work my way through them.
So, I love the Grey Stingray leather print, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to use it as a necklace or a bracelet and decided I would refuse to chose and make both.
For this I just cut half a meter and very easily attached the cord ends with some glue. This is it as a necklace
As you can see the cord is thick enough to hold its shape and it is a nice shape against the neck. Then if I want to wear it as a bracelet, I just wrap it multiple times around my wrist and close the clasp . . .
All very easy peasy, lemon squeasy.
