It's November, time is passing by fast and we are already on part 5 of my little artisan Christmas gift guide series. Only some small events are going to happen before the jolly Christmas time, we look for Nicolaus, celebrate 4 Advents or Thanksgiving to name just a few. But it can truly be said now - Santa is coming!
So lets get the bling on for Santa with modern leather jewellery by Melodie, enjoy it all and light some candles it's that time of the year!
Melodie from SlinkyLinks jewellery. She makes modern and wonderful light to wear jewellery. She found leather as her material and uses reclaimed leather for all her works. She started out and created her brand after working in the footwear industry. She realised the potential of the wasted leather and went for a sustainable approach by using cast-offs. It is one of her daily accomplishments turning discarded quality material into beautiful, colourful and fun pieces. Each piece of leather is unique and has to be cleverly used to show the full potential and beauty. This creative way of working forces her to come up with designs to fit the material at hand. She also love reaching out to fellow leatherworkers, partnering with them to use their discarded bits of leather, constantly bringing novelty to her collections. Always, designing with modern women in mind, creating versatile pieces that they can wear day or night. This as well as the eco-friendly aspect of her creations appreciate her kind customers the most.

My name is Antje and I'm a London-based artist and creative entrepreneur with a great love for design and making or in other words - a photographer who has moved into concrete sculpting. I focus primarily on monochrome art but often branch out into creating other visuals and versatile objects. You could say this Christmas I even branched out into serious blogging and it has been my true pleasure to introduce these wonderful designer makers to you!
