I am so excited to be teaming up with Nickel and Suede today. I love love love their leather jewelry.
“Nickel and Suede began as a side project for owner Kilee Nickels. In 2008, Kilee and her husband Soren started their first business, ONE little BELT, making and selling real leather belts for babies and toddlers. As the business grew, their skills and workshop expanded. Soon, creating with leather was just a part of everyday life, be it filling belt orders or crafting archery quivers and leather baseballs for their three young sons.”
Two of my favorites – Matte Gold and Luxe Linen. And I just recently saw on their Instagram account that they have a few new colors.
I LOVE the Minty Fresh ones too!
The leather cuffs are just as awesome as their earrings. When I wore my cuff the first time, Rick immediately noticed and asked me where I got my new gold bracelet. 🙂
“Kilee is a style and DIY blogger who will often alter an existing item or make something herself to get just the right look. One Saturday while getting dressed, she was looking for the right color of gold earring; everything she owned was too yellow. She remembered she had picked up a piece of gorgeous gold textured leather the week before and thought maybe it would work for earrings. She traced her favorite pair of silver teardrop earrings and cut them out.
As she attached the hooks, she could see that the look was perfect; what she didn’t expect was that they felt even better than they looked! The leather was so lightweight, flexible, and comfortable. They didn’t pull on her ears, cut into her neck, or even make a sound. Soon, Kilee started wearing these leather earrings exclusively. When she realized she was even wearing them to mow the lawn because she couldn’t even feel them, she knew she was onto something.”
The earrings are soft and so lightweight you forget that they are there. There have so many varieties of colors and textures. You have to check out their website to see for yourself.
I love that Kilee was a DIY blogger turned entepreneur. Bloggers have the best DIY ideas!
