THERE ARE 10 PHOTOS ABOVE SHOWING ALL THE YUMMY DETAILS
NOTE this is not a thick wallet but one for those who need space for a few cards, drivers license, bills and their checkbook. See all details below
PEKING PEARL...she is simply adorable 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 lighweight BUXTON and is a very evenly grained fine leather which is tanned in a beautiful plum color 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. .
This is a flatter checkbook and credit card style wallet . Inside has 4 layered credit card pockets on one side as well as an ID card holder with window and a checkbook holder with a clear vinyl carbon checkbook divider built in..
There is a long open pocket on the outside of the wallet as well as a full length bill opposite the checkbook area that is secure when snapped shut
My hand painting is applied in as many as 6 thick 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 sage green and pearlized gold to cranberry with silvery rose touches. Retro style flowers dart across the metallic background. The hot and cold combo of tones really is electric. The touches of white in Pearl's coat make it all the more dramatic. Each element of the artwork is carefully outlined to make the dog, flowers and really POP forward from the leather.
Ive also added a special touch over the snap tab. 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 magniifies 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 spray of the retro flowers 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 6 3/4 long, 3 1/2" tall x 1/2 thick before filling with your bills, cards etc. It holds an amazing amount of stuff for its size.
