This is the first leather work I did several years ago. It is a wrought iron chair frame with brass knobs & leather sling seats & arms. The stitch designs are all hand done with coad & linen thread. The stitch designs I still use on many of my ottomans & other pieces. This is the only pic I can find. So a word of warning always document your work. Over the years I allowed way too many pieces go out the door without pics. I now regret that. Also don't forget a makers mark of some sort.

The spoons are some of my early forge work.

Very nice! I would be proud to have a chair of that quality and class.

Leather has it's own natural flaws... So does the artist! :}
