Pyrography is the art of engraving wood, vegetable tanned leather or bone using heat. Through adjusting the amount of heat and the shape of the wire tip, different shades and textures can be created. 

Shelley enjoys incorporating fine art into her leather work through the use of pyrography. This is also a brilliant way of personalising commissions for individuals, through engraving calligraphy or a requested design or even photo to an item.
