Aaron Lopez Bautista Hand-Braided Organic Leather Lariat Style Necklace with Tassels
Hand-braided tight weave lariat style necklace in organic light brown leather with tassel closure by artist Aaron Lopez Bautista.
Aaron is intimately involved in every step in the creation of his fashionable jewelry, using age-old techniques to tan and process his leather, hand cutting strips to perfection, and utilizing tight, handwoven weave structures to create support for his subtle forms. Everything he sees, everything he does, is connected to his techniques and the beautiful jewelry he creates. In his pieces, Aaron works with only native tanned leather, free from chemical processing. He is forever attempting to capture ancient wisdom within his modern designs, just as when he was a little boy making toys from rocks and gifts from the land.
