Lately I’ve been daydreaming of making some cuffs that are stitched together from multiple pieces of leather.  The basic rectangular shape is maintained, but then it’s cut and put back together.  The forms reflect each other, but within the boundaries.

Tonight I did some brainstorming about what sort of forms, designs and techniques would work well with this concept.  Images of that process follow.  Freehand drawing isn’t really my thing, but the brainstorming process is still vital despite my lack of fine motor skills.  It helps you figure out what works and what doesn’t early on.

added a little color to see how that would go

These final proofs look like they will work well in the leather, but I won’t know for sure until I actually try it. Tomorrow I’m going to take some of these designs to the leather and see if they’re as cool in real life as they are on the page!
