in the shop: copper, rock, and rawhide choker

Posted on May 11th, 2015 by mountain girl  |  4 Comments »


Hi there!  I just wanted to post this choker I recently finished.  I created it with a rock pendant, a rawhide neck strap, and a piece of solid copper which I hammered and curved. (And I actually am wearing a shirt here, so don’t even think that I’m not.) 😉


I wrapped the strap and pendant with copper wire to fasten them to the collar bone piece.


Cash and I like to look for cool rocks in Boulder Creek, and we found this one there.  I hammered the copper spiral and attached it to the rock with wire.


I made this hook-and-eye clasp, hammered and textured it, and fastened it to the rawhide strap.


I like how it looks a little wild, raw, and primitive–and I think it looks interesting and pretty with either jeans or dressy attire.  But then, I’m a little different.  What do you think?

This choker can be found in my shop at PocoLeonStudio.
