Recycle and Reuse

For the Holidays we began to create a line of unique Whimsy stockings. After exploring possibilities of the stockings themselves, we began to create name tags hand cut from leather to hang from our sculptural hand sewn Christmas socks. 

As orders rolled in, and the name tags began to sell, all the letters which I had cut from the leather were tossed aside to be later evaluated for future recycled projects. Leather is a precious material that deserves much respect, so I save each letter to present this artistic challenge of brainstorming ways to reuse and recycle.
