Make a statement with your watch with a handmade leather cuff watch in the Blaise pattern. This watch has a simple wood grain texture carved into the leather and is dyed a solid chocolate brown. The watch band measures 2" wide and will be sized to fit your wrist with either a snap or buckle closure (PLEASE Leave your choice and your wrist measurements in the "NOTES TO SELLER" section when you check out). To measure your wrist properly it is best to use a cloth tape measure (the style a tailor would use) and pull it snug around the smallest part of your wrist. If one is not available, cut a thin strip of paper and have someone else mark where the overlap is, then measure with a ruler (do not use something that will stretch). As with all Moxie and Oliver items, the leather for this watch is cut, carved, painted and dyed by hand before a protective coat is added. The watch comes with a silver toned watch face, which is removable by way of snaps so that you can easily change the battery or switch the face. I am happy to do custom orders - just ask!
I'm a full-time leathercraft artist, mother, and author of "Leathercrafted." I'm a certified leathercraft master. I started Moxie & Oliver in 2014 out of a desire to create leather accessories that were as durable as they were beautiful. After eleven years making leather goods, and with the original pieces still in use (and looking amazing), I have accomplished that and so much more. Teaching leathercraft classes out of my studio allows me to share my love of the craft, my knowledge of the process and history, and my original techniques for adding pattern and color, with interested students. Classes are open to anyone age 12 and older (under 18 must be accompanied by an adult taking a class at the same time). My unique process allows anyone, artistic background or not, to be able to create a beautiful, functional, leather good in an afternoon, a day or a weekend. Come with an open mind and a rough idea of what you'd like to accomplish - with your inspiration and my guidance, YOU will make something wonderful!
