I am very excited to introduce my new line of leather cutting dies and companion findings from Sizzix. It has been a complete joy working with all the good people at Sizzix-Ellison and we have worked hard to bring this new line of quality tools for both the home studio and professional studios. Cutting leather has never been easy...until now!
Using any of the Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine:
There are two kinds of dies. Steel rule dies which are for cutting thicker leather like the cuff of a bracelet (on the left) and thin ornamental dies (on right) for cutting lighter weight leather for layering on top of the heavyweight leather.
To create this...WOW!
We are pretty excited because it is a big deal to bring new tools to the jewelry-making community. New tools that allow you to do something at home that is usually only in the hands of manufacturers. The ability to easily die cut leather at home and is a game changer! Those of you that cut paper will recognize these tools which have been engineered now to cut leather. Brilliant!
We will be showing the line at the Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee in June and cannot wait to see the response from all the jewelry makers there. Our choice of leathers is another thing of note. We have beautiful pastels in pink and blues, and we have soulful metallic colors for a very upscale look. You cannot find these colors available anywhere else. We're bring the complete package!
