Memories of my first leather jacket.
Leather jewelry with feeling.
Growing up my favorite piece of clothing was my leather jacket. My father brought it back from a trip to Vegas and it was the nicest gift he ever gave me. It was a very light and comfortable jacket. It was black fringed and had little silver round accent pieces tied in the fringe. It was waist length and had pockets on the outside and a Mickie pocket on the inside. The inside had a soft silky lining. I loved when a designer would add in an inside pocket where you could keep your keys, a few cards, cash, and maybe gum and lipstick. The leather jacket just had a little attitude and made me feel good. I felt cool and strong in it. It looked sharp and had a metal head edge to it. Yet it was feminine when I wore it with a frilly cropped blouse and gold hoop earrings and layered chain necklaces. And a little badass with leather knee boots. It was the nineties and very on-trend. Unfortunately, that jacket got stolen and a good friend gave me hers it was the same as my leather jacket just in suede. I kept that jacket all these years and it is old and a little tattered and holds a lot of fond memories.
When I started making my leather jewelry I wanted that feeling I had then in my jewelry now. I wanted badass but feminine. A little bit of edge like wearing that leather jacket on my earlobes. I wanted my jewelry to be light and comfortable just like my leather jacket was. What I have created are all those things that I love! What a fantastic way to express oneself at any age wearing my leather and faux leather jewelry. From kids to seniors they all love my jewelry. My 75-year-old mother loves her jewelry and it has survived the shower when she forgot to take them off! You will love it too. I suggest trying a set that speaks to you. Many of my pieces are limited as i could not get that color or pattern again. Mix it up I wear my leather jewelry layered with my real gold or silver pieces and it looks great. I have made very small subtle pieces and larger bolder pieces so there is something for everyone. No matter what size you buy, it will be light and comfortable to wear. If you want something fun try my puff sets. My puff earrings and pendants are like little leather pillows. They are fun to wear and look very cool on. The puffs are light and comfortable too. You may see a bit of seventies, eighties, and the 1990’s flare in my jewelry. There is something for everyone in Leanne’s leather jewelry. I make each piece by hand and put blessings and good energy into it just for you. I know these times are hard and thinking of fashion may not be at the top of your list? Your self worth and self esteem should be. Tough times make us stronger. Now is the time to raise your loving energy back up and look and feel your best. Get up take that shower put on your best clothes and your jewelry and be happy with who you are. When you feel good and happy it is infectious! You will influence others to feel better about themselves too. Be complimentary say something nice to a stranger, and to your family and friends. Raise the energy in the world one smile at a time, one compliment at a time. Big changes start small things and grow. Be a positive change now.
