NEW LEATHER CUFFS AND BRACLETS


Back from Europe this week to chilly Sydney weather. Hard to adjust to the cold nights after hot Paris days. 


I had to jump back into work and complete these leather cuffs I had been working on. Finally got them photographed. All these adjustable leather cuffs are made from 100% reclaimed materials. All the rings and leather are from old straps and salvaged leather. 


It is nice to take a break from sewing clothes every day and I have decided to do more accessories to break the monotony.Here are my latest pieces. Hope you like them.

CIMETIERE DES CHIENS PARIS: THE DOG AND PET CEMETERY


Although not your usual tourist hot spot, The Cimetière des Chiens in Paris is a beautiful and moving place. Being dog lovers and missing our boy Bruce back at home, we decided to check out this place. Rin Tin Tin is buried here along with hundreds of dogs, cats, a goat and a monkey. It has been a place for over one hundred years Parisians can bury their loved ones. We cried over the beautiful images, sculptures and inscriptions on the graves.
