This is a pink, hand-tooled leather keyring made to look like dragon scales.
The piece started as a beige-coloured plain piece of veg-tan leather. After being cut, a design was marked out onto the leather. This was carved and stamped into the leather. Once finished, the piece was painted using a blend of acrylic leather paints in pinks and silver. The piece was then mounted onto a pale pink piece of chrome-tanned leather, and the edges were sealed with black edge paint.
The keyring also features a silver-coloured gate style keyring.
This forms part of a series of dragon pieces (brooches, necklaces, other keyrings) I’ve made. Check out my website for the full range (so far!) – not all of them will be listed on this site.
