Bat pendant necklace, hand-shaped leather by shmeeden
Bat pendant necklace, hand-shaped leather
This little guy is hand-shaped from vegetable-tanned leather, using no forms or moulds. He is an original design.  He is also hand-painted.

At a size of approximately 3.5" wide by 1.5" tall, he makes a great statement with any outfit. He hangs from a 16" silver-plated snake chain, and sits high -- just where the collar bones meet -- so he can clear the neckline on most outfits. (A longer 18" chain is also available at no charge, by request.)

Check him out, along with other handmade items, here in the jewelry section of my Etsy shop:…
Fantasy Cardinal leather bird mask by shmeeden
Fantasy Cardinal leather bird mask
I revisited my original leather cardinal bird mask design and went for a larger version, with the taller top feathers more in keeping with the crest of the actual bird.  I'm really happy with how it turned out!

This piece is currently available, as of this posting, and is ready to ship, anywhere in the world.  It's available here in my Etsy shop:…

A little info about my masks: all of them are shaped entirely by hand, freehand.  I don't use any forms or moulds.  The templates are also designed by me.  I hand-paint every item with high quality acrylic paints and a dry brush method for the highlights.  Most of my masks, like this one, are sculpted from a single piece of leather.  All of the masks can be worn!

Thanks for checking out my work!
The Christmas shipping deadline is fast approaching! To get everyone ordering in time, I've decided to give some incentive, and will have all matted prints marked down 20% between now and this Friday, December 5th.  Order now to save some $$ and have a sweet, ready-to-frame, signed piece of artwork to give as a pretty rad gift.

No coupon code is necessary: all discounts have already been applied.  Happy shopping!  :D…

(A note on shipping deadlines: shipments to Canada and the U.S. should still make it in time, as the send-by deadline for this year has not yet passed.  Packages to Europe and other locations still have a good chance of making it, but as the suggested deadline has passed I can't absolutely guarantee they'll be there by Christmas.)

Thank you for your interest in my work! :)

Thank you so much!!  I loved your owl photo!

I was wondering, actually: would you mind if I referenced it for a painting?  I think it would work really well!

You can see another owl painting of mine here:…
