One look at these leather stitched cone pendants makes me want to take up knitting. Made with supple brown leather stretched on cone shaped frames, these are no ordinary pendant lights. Yes, the leather is nice and soft but what makes these pendants unique is the double stitch that holds them together. The double stitch forms an X shaped pattern that adds visual interest to these pendants and your space.
Leather Stitched Cone Pendants
Did you know that besides creating nice wool hats, knitting can provide many significant health benefits. The first and more obvious benefits are improving the dexterity of your hands and fingers. It keeps them limber and can reduce the pain of arthritis for those who suffer from it. But more importantly, studies have found that the rhythmic and repetitive action of hand knitting can help prevent and manage stress which in turn helps strengthen the immune system. Knitting creates a relaxed state in the body which can lower blood pressure, heart rate and have an overall calming effect on our physical well being. Pain specialists have found that hand knitting actually changes the chemistry in the brain to raise our feel good hormones like serotonin and dopamine and at the same time lower our stress hormones. Similar to the effects of running but a lot easier. Research has also linked knitting to a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Who knew and it all started with these leather stitched cone pendants. Hand me those knitting needles please.
