Kayleigh, the founder of A Weathered Penny, has used lockdown to learn a new skill. She found she had a lot of leather off-cuts following the sampling and production of a recent bag launch and was keen to reduce the waste and re-purpose the leather. She taught herself to cut the leather into shapes which she could assemble to create a new earring design.
“The great thing about the earrings means I can use even the smallest bits to create something new, which I love. I'm playing around with other designs now” Kayleigh says. The earrings, in pale, tan and forest vegetable leather, are currently limited edition but Kayleigh says she’d love to make more and has plans to extend the line to key rings and homeware items.
