Commission.Leather cutout, painted with leather paints, old clock parts applied with epoxy glue.(Will be applied to the back of a leather jacket, or hanged in a big brass porthole frame :) )

This drawing took over a year to finish :phew: It is inspired by the earlier versions of the Little Red Riding Hood and the fairytale I was told when I was a child, where the forest is dark and scary, but full of animals and creatures that live there, and Red Riding Hood is a very brave girl that defeats the Big Bad Wolf all by herself (when my mum wanted to finish the story faster, Red Riding Hood gave the wolf a beating before anyone reached the grandma’s house ) It is drawn with black and red Rotring ink and rapidographs (mostly 0.13 mm and 0.4 mm) on Canson textured, acid-free paper of 250g/m2, 30 x 40 cm (=11.8 x 15.7 inches). The original drawing and printable file for download available on Etsy: AdalheidisAMJ.Etsy.com

Good morning!
I believe the collar is done. I have removed the choking effect and I confirm - it is comfortable to wear, hugs the neck and makes you feel very cosy :)
Matching cuffs, or rather leather arm warmers - are already cut, glued and pricked, ready to be stitched and painted.

I think the final effect is well worth the frustration of trying to fit four chain links into one (half of them went flying ).
Too early in the morning to make someone take a photo of me wearing it, so - meet my new headless mannequin bust
