We’ve been selling leather at Thunder Moon Supplies for several months and we thought we should let you know about the different kinds of leather that we offer with some examples of completed projects.
Regaliz™ Leather – Regaliz is Spanish for licorice. Also called licorice leather, this is a thick leather that measures approximately 10mm x 6mm and makes beautiful bracelets. The leather comes from Europe. We have a full assortment of clasps, spacers and beads available for this leather. Here is a photo of a bracelet made with Regaliz™ leather.
