Kellie found this little gem in a pile of kid's purses. At first she thought it was just little fake jewels but it was heavy and felt very strange. When she opened it she discovered the tag still inside and a marking in the leather. It is made of genuine Sting Ray Skin leather! Did you ever feel a sting ray? It it such a strange surface....looks bumpy but it is really smooth. This wallet is a beautiful shade of burgundy and has a zippered coin section as well. What a unique accessory! I did some research and found out that sting ray leather is the latest rage....it doesn't get ruined when it gets wet which makes sense since it is from an underwater creature!
