I love Akiko’s binders. She sells from kikosattic on Etsy and I have featured her many time previously.
However, another one of her wonderful specialties is handmade leather purse necklaces and key rings.
I have one keyring which holds all my ‘everyday carry’ stationery. It clips to the bookmark ring on my binder.
I also have a necklace which doesn’t hold anything but looks gorgeous against just about any colour but particularly gorgeous against a filmy summer shirt.
And here are some other beauties, past and present, from Akikos Shop. As with all her other items, each is handmade and every one is beautiful – like a small work of art!
What unique and lovely pieces! Yes, the patchwork and the grey and the green… Kikko, I will be visiting soon.
The patchwork one is glorious!
I’m sorry – AKIKO. Not kikko!
Ooh, what a good idea to use the purse as a keyring! I think I’ll try that. I have the patchwork one, plus one made from a kimono belt which I adore as a necklace. Coincidentally, a lace one arrived this morning which I’ve bought for a friend’s birthday.
