DIY Leather Lariat with Peacock Feather

Wearing my old DIY peacock feather & beaded leather lariat as a belt today

*Note: I made this in 2009 with my gold baubles necklace

A couple weeks ago while making my chain tassel necklaces, I remembered that 100 years ago I made leather bead necklaces that Fred Segal on Melrose bought and sold out of. They were basically long strands of leather with a few choice beads at the ends and meant for anything really: necklace, belt, bracelet, curtain tie, you name it, you could use it. Then just recently I noticed the Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 collection featured very similar creations …adding a feather at the end. So here is a new version of my original design now inspired by Louis Vuitton.

    Love this idea! My mom actually has wild peacocks that drop their feathers all over her yard so we’re always looking for new ways to use them! I’ve made way too many feather earrings.
