This is a red, hand-tooled leather keyring made to look like a dragon eye.
One side features a single hand-tooled leather dragon eye. The other side features uniform dragon scales.
The piece started as a beige-coloured plain piece of veg-tan leather. After being cut, a design was marked out onto the leather. This was carved and stamped into the leather. Once finished, the piece was dyed black and painted silver using acrylic leather paint. The piece was stitched and the edges were burnished.
The keyring also features a silver-coloured gate style keyring.
This forms part of a series of dragon pieces (brooches, necklaces, other keyrings) I’ve made. Check out my tooled leather page for the full range (so far!) – not all of them will be listed on this site.
