Leather and Lace: A Stitch in Time!

What do you think of when I say leather and lace? Does it take you back to the 60’s, the 80’s, or even to one of those other times, when trends from prior periods, get adopted and then shine brightly for a while.

As a former teenager (heh, heh), there’s nothing better than an outfit, that includes blue jeans, leather and lace. As a Baby Boomer, I need to state that we still love those outfits, but now they contain spandex! Who invented spandex anyway? That person needs a medal, our undying gratitude, and a whole lot of money!!!

True confession time! I still wear jeans, own a couple of leather jackets, and even have bits of lace peeking out of the closet, and drawers. Blush! But more than that, I have leather jewelery!

Leather and lace is trendy in jewelry right now. How do I know? Why I learned about it on the internet! LOL! I think it may be up to me to design a BeadFX workshop, that contains some of these components. Wouldn’t that be fun? I’m not working on it now but watch for it in the fall!

BeadFX has tons of leather! We even have “Inspirations“, showing it as either the star, or a supporting player in the designs. Absolutely no lace though, but you might find a few pearls and stones. But I want lace! Waaa!!

I need a leather cuff, dripping in lace! Yes, it’s probably better suited to the fall/winter, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting leather and lace, does it? I may need to start small, then make a light wrap bracelet of some type. What if I make some fabric beads to include in the bracelet? How about using lace as a stencil? What about stringing on some of those new, big hole pearls? Yummy! The possibilities are endless!

All of this talk about leather and lace is making me both nostalgic, and excited? I do lead a dull life, don’t I? But more importantly, what do you think about it all?
