Female full set of armor by akinra-workshop
Female full set of armor
Custom made-on-size leather armor. This set was made by following sketches drawn by the customer. Fully handmade : embossing, coloring and sewing. Three weeks of hard work on this set.  Crafted in high quality 4mm vegetable leather used in saddlery. For improving longevity, each piece was carefully oiled and protected with a wax of my fabrication.

The armor is composed of :
- a helm
- a pair of arm bracers
- a pair of shoulder
- a breastplate
- a pair of tassets
- a pair of sabbatons
- a belt
- a belt horn holder and table stand
- a sword holder
- an axe holder
- a belt bag

Each piece, full handmade, is carved with feathers. A second piece of leather was sewed on the edge of each part of the set. Each second piece is embossed with celtic design and hold a cabochon of resin which copy amber. Real amber would have cost too much at the customer (size of cab : 18x25mm and 30x40mm). Each piece can be worn separatly.
I hope that you will like it. Thanks in advance for the favs :). Feel free to comment and critiques this work.

More detailed and on set picture will follow.

Hi everyone!

After a lot of message, something like "but, WHERE do you find all you metallic piece? I want just one for an outfit but can't find where buy it".

Well, most of it you can't... I bought directly to a manufacturer as a professionnal. So, now you can buy a part of my supplies on my etsy.
First a cape clasp :…
Second, some buckle :…

Next will come some concho rivet back. Of course, there won't be all of it on the etsy in the next week, it's a lot of work and for each product, I need to discuss price with my supplier... What for? To be able to sell them at you at a nice price.

I hope that you will like my supplies!

DON'T forget my facebook. Facebook? It's the new way to getr known. It is free for you, it is free for me, but when I post something on it and you like or share it, you put my work on the top of google research.

By liking my page, by liking my picture and sharing them, by all theses things that are free, YOU can really (really!) help me at making a living from my art. A product linked from etsy to facebook that is shared only ten times and liked twenty has thirty more chance to get sold.

Thanks you all in advance for helping me!

Facebook, it's also picture from work in progress from the workshop, it's news, it's game where you can win a prize, it's promotional code, it's... A lot more than that!

So all of you, let's go here and share the page :…
