I come from a long line of creators . . . houses, furniture, recipes, and art. It is in my blood to value quality, detail and craftsmanship. Purses are in my earliest family photos, posing by a birthday cake or making sure my new purse was appropriately modeled at Christmas. Dreams of creating purses grew as I did. After being married and having kids I became the family manager . . . the best job ever! The purse-idea file grew but remained in the drawer.
Quality leather is a pleasure to work with. I started designing and creating leather wrap bracelets. Selecting materials to pair together and hearing of the delight they bring people have provided joy back to me.
When my oldest daughter was engaged to be married, I decided to make her a leather tote bag for her bridal shower. She is an amazing, capable, wonderful person, who inspires and encourages me as she is on her own journey of creating innovative products with carbon fiber. Her tote bag turned out well. Most importantly, it was the beginning of making a childhood dream a reality.
Only high-quality materials are used to create these one-of-a-kind bags and bracelets. I am grateful for the opportunity to make them. It feeds my soul.
Each of my leather goods is created from leather that may have natural markings. I try to use as much of a hide as possible and will try to work around these markings if I can. However, some people may think this looks like a flaw, to me these things give character to my leather bags and make them truly one-of-a-kind.
Leather is a natural material, so please be aware that each bag may have slight variations in texture and color. But know that your bag will be beautiful and durable in all of it's handcrafted splendor.
