Hand-tooled, retro-style rose brooch


Out of stock


A hand-tooled leather rose in a retro tattoo style.

This brooch starts out as a flat piece of plain leather. I then drew out the rose design, before transferring it to the dampened leather. I carved the design into the transferred lines, and then used special leather stamps to create depth, and texture. Once the leather is dry, I used leather acrylic paints to colour the piece in a retro tattoo style. Once sealed, the piece is mounted onto a brooch back with another piece of leather. Finally the edges are finished and sealed.

While the piece is fairly robust, it is not designed for hard wear.
