Rustic Leather Necklace
About the Artist: Laudelia Rivas
I'm a retired teacher, 67, living in Petrolina with my husband, who helps me creating the leather pieces. I've been working with jewelry for about 10 years, but I began to use leather two years ago. I love making beads--it's relaxing and exciting at the same time, because we are always creating something new. I make earrings and bracelets too.
I'd like to exchange experiences with people around the world who love beading. I make all kind of beads, and now I'm using local materials such as fruit seed from Amazonas, wood, leather, crystal, resin and fabric.
