This work is a team effort. I’m a leather man and my little brother is a wood working madman specializing in making pieces from salvaged wood, so the wood this leather is tacked to has a history all its own.
The Image and leather are my end. I take an image and burn it into the leather by hand, then dye it and seal it, using various dying and burning tricks to create the tones in the leather that bring the image to life.
My idea in making this was form meeting function. I wanted to make something rich and beautiful that still served a purpose— hence the hooks. Add a little atmosphere to your home and some convenience at the same time.
Now these in particular I made to add some beauty and utility to your prayer life. From reminding you of the virtues of our Saints that we may emulate them to having a place to hang your rosaries to keep them accessible without tangling! Granted you can use these for whatever you wish, but Rosaries are their intention and what I use my own for.
