Still Life: Pewter & Leather

tankard-leather-4I took this photo last year as a Facebook teaser for the leather bags I was starting to make for my shop. These are simple drawstring coin / dice / trinket pouches made from goatskin. I also use Canadian moose hide, which I obtain from a traditional native craft supply shop operated by Six Nations people, and I sometimes embellish the bags with handmade wooden toggles from reclaimed local trees. Along with my prized Scottish pewter tankard (“It comes in pints?? I’m getting one!!!), I thought this made a nice vignette. Pay the barkeep, and drink up!
