Carla Bruno / Carli Bruno Leather
Hometown: Norwalk, CT
If you have a funky, creative sense of style, you’ll love the show-stopping jewelry and accessories from Carli Bruno Leather. Based in Norwalk, CT, Bruno crafts each leather piece using a contemporary fusing method. This process involves layering thin sheets of hand-painted glass, which then take on a colorful and exciting look as they are fused in the kiln. Then, those glass pieces are paired with Argentinean leather to create memorable designs. In some cases, additional materials are incorporated as well, such as wood, chamois, metals and stones. The resulting one-of-a-kind pieces are something you’ll cherish for years to come as a standout piece of your wardrobe.
In addition to luxurious Argentinean leather jewelry, Carli Bruno Leather also has a number of fun and practical accessories for sale, such as leather totes, wristlets and sandals. These colorful and artistic items make wonderful gifts for loved ones.
