"CHERISH" Totally blinged out leather wallet

Image Description
THERE ARE 9 PHOTOS ABOVE SHOWING ALL THE YUMMY DETAILS CHERISH...she is lovely peeking out from behind the wallet closure, and the perfect name for this chow girl which graces my one of a kind designer wallet. Everything about this luscious wearable art accessory grabs your attention. From the pearlized finish in all the hand painting, to the custom "snap" button created just for this piece. The wallet itself is a MUNDI and is a very evenly grained fine leather which is black everywhere inside and the snap tab. The remainder I have customized front and back. As will all hand painted items I only use the best as they take an incredible amount of time to create. Mundi is the wallet I have carried for years with no signs of wear. I trust their name completely. The inside has 8 layered credit card pockets on one side and 7 on the other as well as an ID card holder with window on the back side of the checkbook holder. There are 2 large areas from bills inside the wallet as well as a full length coin purse area that opens at the top with a silver clutch style clasp. It is extremely secure and can hold bills too. My hand painting is applied in as many as 6 think layers of leather stains and paints which act like tattoo ink and literally soak into the leather for a permanent finish. I love the way this method retains the beautiful grain and texture of the leather and is supple, flexible and soft to the touch. It does not feel at all like paint. I hope you can see how the colors are all metallic/pearlized and shift tones depending on the light which you can only really see in person. The background I shaded from cobalt to turquoise with sage green leaves and coral/orange/red stylized blossoms. The hot and cold combo of tones really is electric. The touches of white in Cherish's coat make it all the more dramatic. Each element of the artwork is carefully outlined to make the dog, flowers and leaves really POP forward from the leather. I've also added a special touch over the snap tab (there are 2 snaps for expansion) The little handmade polymer clay chow "button" was created just for this design and given a thick layer of clear resin for awesome durability and maginifies the teeny chow inside....a special little touch you will notice every time you take the wallet out. This is meant to be used, not just admired on the dresser. The back of the wallet also is accented with a handpainted pair of green metallic leaves to bring the theme all the way around the wallet. This is indeed a mouth watering piece and an heirloom quality collectible . I will sign and date this ONE OF A KIND wallet inside before it it shipped MEASUREMENTS 7 1/2" long, 4 " tall x 3/4" thick before filling with your bills, cards etc. It holds an amazing amount of stuff for it's size.
