Custom Leather Goods by Alex Seigfried

I have a deep background in fine arts, having graduated from Temple University in 2000 with a BFA (Tyler School of Art program).  Drawing, painting, ceramics, metals, computer-aided design, graphic design, illustration, sculpture, and various crafts.  What I never had an opportunity to learn at school was leatherworking.  For the past year, I’ve been honing that craft and applying my current skills while acquiring new ones.  That happy results are the following, I hope you see something you like and want one of your own.

Do you have a design or idea for a custom piece?  I love a challenge and can work with you to make something one of a kind.  Send me your ideas and I’ll quote you a price and rough timeline.

Armbands

Wrist Shield – Black Fire

A single thin band that wraps around the wrist and tucks under a larger ‘shield’ of leather on top.  Two snaps hold this together and studs were added as requested by the customer.  The design is cut and custom stamped.

You could do ANYTHING with this simple design.  Carve something onto the shield or the band, burn it, stud it, imbed jewels, rivets.  I’m quite happy with the versatility of this design and look forward to doing more of them.  Also used black dye for the first time and Wow, that is a nice look.  Will be doing more black dye projects in the future.

TO MAKE:

I need your wrist size, take a measuring tape, and wrap it around your wrist one inch above where your arm meets your hand.

If you would like the band thicker or as shown.

Dye color, if different than shown.

Hardware color (antique brass, chrome, or gunmetal)

Keyhole and Key

This band is a single strap that runs around the wrist but I’ve added a second layer of cutouts.  The key is held with rivets and waxed thread and it’s next to the keyhole which you can see straight through to the wrist.  Two snaps hold it together.

This could be resized to be thicker or larger for a man or a woman.  I’d suggest a deep, dark, leather dye with either antiqued brass or chrome snaps/rivets.

Spiked Weave

The original design for this bangle didn’t include spikes but this was a custom request.  If you would like it without spikes that is not an issue.  This is a thick, single band, with three long slits through the center, cross bands are woven through these slits to create the weave pattern.  Rivets hold everything in place and the band is held together with two snaps.

This band could be fun in any color either dyed or painted.

TO MAKE:

I need your wrist size, take a measuring tape, and wrap it around your wrist one inch above where your arm meets your hand.

The band must be thick to accommodate the weave.

Vine

Who says an armband has to be a rectangle, this piece is shaped and cut to wrap the wrist like a real laurel.  The original design is burned into the leather with a wood burner then dyed varying shades of green.  Highlights are then painted on with acrylic and sealed to protect from wear.  The hardware is a single snap.

It’s possible to make any sort of shape, if you have different ideas let me know!  Leaves, pumpkins, skulls… whatever your mind conjures up.

TO MAKE:

I need your wrist size, take a measuring tape, and wrap it around your wrist one inch above where your arm meets your hand.

The band can be any sort of thickness, the one shown varies between 1.5″ and 2″.

Tentacles

Tentacles!  I’ll be honest with you, carving all those little details takes time and patience but it’s way worth it.  This is a single band that’s been carved into three tentacles with suckers.  Two snaps hold it together.

I think this could be done as a single tentacle if you wanted a thinner band.  If you wanted the tentacles to curl and stick out from the band more that could also be done.  It would require some re-sketching and layout work because of the complexity.

TO MAKE:

I need your wrist size, take a measuring tape, and wrap it around your wrist one inch above where your arm meets your hand.

The band can be any sort of thickness, the one shown varies between 1.5″ and 2″.

Secret Slapper

This is a neat one, it’s a single piece of leather that tapers to a long end.  Slots are cut in the middle so that you can tuck and weave the band into itself to secure it to your wrist.  This is a great design because it requires no hardware and it accommodates several different sizes!

This would look good in any color and if you don’t want the flogger design carved into it that can be accommodated.  It’s a very simple yet elegant design.

TO MAKE:

I need your wrist size, take a measuring tape, and wrap it around your wrist one inch above where your arm meets your hand.

The band can be any sort of thickness, but you need it to tapper so I would suggest it not be smaller than 2″ on the fat end.

Coloration if different from what is shown.

Hardware is not needed but if you have ideas on adding studs or spikes we can work that out.

Feather Totem

Simple thick band with a feather totem design burned into it.  Two snaps keep the band shut.

I can literally draw any sort of design on a band and burn it in, if you can dream it I can draw it.  The only limitations are how detailed it needs to be, the burner leaves a mark around the size of a thin sharpie.

Ferns

Single band shaped into a trapazoid to give it a unique shape when wrapped around the wrist.  The leaves are stamped into the leather and the whole thing is held together with a snap.

This design was fun to make, I can do different kinds of plants but the ferns take to the green really nice.  Let me know if you want to try something similar with other plants. 🙂

Hair Ornaments

Raven

A single piece of leather with two sets of holes, this allows different sizes for a chopstick to hold hair together.

I’ve just started messing with these, anything I can put a set of holes in will work.  This example is a carved and cut bird, any shape can be done.  If you wanted to keep it simpler and have a burned design in an oval or ectangle, this could also be done.

Neck Bands and Collars

Feather Collar

Shaped collar with two tones of dye, held together with belt hardware so that it can be resized from size 15″ to 17″ around the neck.  The design is carved into the leather.

I’ve just started making collars so this is the prototype.  If you’re looking for a more classic look or an even crazier idea let me know your thoughts.  I have several O rings that could be incorporated into designs or spikes, this one is simply leather all the way around.

Neck Medallions

Glow in the Dark Cthulhu and Dagon Medallion

Double-sided, carved leather, stitched together with wax thread, with holes to string a leather thong. One side is filled with LIT Glow powder and white foundation paint.

I wanted to use LIT glow powder for a while now and the idea of a big, four-inch round, Cthulhu medallion appealed to me.  The powder keeps recharging and glows for about an hour without need a recharge.  They say it can be recharged indefinitely and three weeks later it’s still going strong.  I can carve/stamp or burn any design into a leather medallion.  Any size medallion.

TO MAKE:

Desired size of medallion.

Desired design, if different from shown.

If you want the glow paint or just plain (see photos).

Coloration if different from what is shown.

Bags

Satchel Bag for Over the Shoulder or Belt

Leather satchel about 6″x 6″ x 3″, the majority of the bag is a single piece that is woven together with a leather thong.  There are rings on the side which I later attached a shoulder strap.  There are two leather bands on the back with snaps that can be put on your belt so you can wear it that way as well.  Carved design.

This was one of my first and most personal projects.  I went with a camping theme and put my personal crest along the top.  It’s a good example of a thick leather bag (no thin sown leather here!) that can last forever if taken care of properly.  There is a ton of surface area to carve or burn designs into and look good in any color with any hardware.  I won’t lie, this takes a long time to make and will cost you several hundred dollars if you include carving and design.  If you want something unique, that will last your whole life, tell me your dream.

TO MAKE:

Desired size of bag.

Desired design, or carving ideas.

How would you like it to attach to your body (shoulder strap, belt, bandolier, handle, etc…).
