Art Elements January Component Reveal

This is the reveal for the first Art Elements component of the month giveaway and design challenge of 2017!  Leather cabochons were created by Lindsay Starr, and she gave some away to a few lucky readers. Guess what?  I was one of those lucky readers.  I don't know which cabs the other two readers received, so you will have to follow the links below to see what they did with their components.


This leather cabochon is something new that I have never worked with before.  I just decided on a beaded pendant on either a leather cord or fabric cord.  The fabric cord won the coin toss.  



Guests:

Thank you for stopping by and comments are welcome!

I am well over 50 years old and have been happily married to the same man for over 20 years.  I have 3 boys ages 16, 19, and 21.  My oldest sons have just finished at Hobart Welding School and are looking for work.  The sooner they are employed, the sooner I get my dream studio!  I also enjoy working with polymer clay, quilting, sewing, beading, reading and most recently working with silver clay.
