We visited our local tannery a couple of days ago, to split our leather on an industrial machine - the moss green, if you can distinguish :), on the photo next to the last one. Actually, it’s not a splitter but a pelt fleshing machine that could be used even on dry leathers, though not as good as it may perform on wet stock. Btw, this is our only tannery i believe, and soon will be closed. Vegetable tanning is becoming more and more rare nowadays… //Sorry for the drama :) and the bad quality cell phone photos.

Another chunky half wallet, veg-tanned leather conditioned with saddle soap - will gladly tan with time. And… a concho - Japanese Meiji 1 Sen from 1880.

Didn’t have to wait long, Erih just made those S hook bracelets :)

New solid brass samples delivery, yeah baby!

The coin patinas never stop to amaze.The first one is a pinkish orange rainbow patina on a ½ Sen Meiji coin from end of the 19th c. The couple of 50 Sen from 1946-1947 show us how brass coin can be copperized with time while keeped somewhere near copper coins, i suppose. And the last but not least is another ½ Sen, a total cull , but such a beauty… Talking about Wabi-sabi ha?

How do you combine a concho with the minimalistic style?

MOAR brass. MOAR conchos. And MOAR hand-riveted rings.

Silver 50 Sen around 1922-1938 (Taisho-Showa). Blackened and polished, this guy is beautiful.
