Natasha Kerimova is a London-based leather jewellery and fashion accessories designer and maker.
The artist’s works are based on three pillars: preservation of artisan skills in leatherwork, sustainability and conveying empathy through decorative objects. All items are entirely handmade. Natasha applies heritage leathercraft techniques to preserve the traditions of artisanship and promote handcrafted goods in the mass production oriented environment.
Sustainability is another priority for the designer. To minimise production waste, the designer creates her unique leather costume jewellery using available leather offcuts. These physical limitations are a significant creative stimulus. This project demonstrates that seemingly useless small leather pieces can be creatively transformed into powerful wearable art objects.
Lots of love and skill are invested in each of leather “jewels”. The artist strives to ensure that customers feel this warmth and empathy when wearing her pieces. Overall, this leather jewellery collection represents the creative synergy of artistic inspiration, craftsmanship and environmental sustainability concerns.
