Slate Leather Clutch

I'm in love with this slate color leather and I used every inch of this leather to create with. I really like this clutch and the look and texture of the leather really makes this bag stand out. I added a tassel to give it a finished look. This bag is now up on my Etsy Shop at

Well Put Together

So I decided to clean out my work room and I try my very best to use every piece of leather that I have. I had so many odd pieces of this toasted leather and I couldn't let it go to waste. I feel like I cut a thousand strips of leather that day but it all paid off. I really love the way this bag came together and I have just enough strips left to make two more bags. I love making one of a kind pieces.

For The Love of Chocolate

I really love creating with this chocolate leather, its very rich in color and has a smooth feel. The more these bags are used and carried around the better the leather will look. This was definately a great find when I went searching for new leather to create with. Please check out my Etsy shop for new items.

Carry Me

I love a classic tote, wearable everyday and looks amazing with a pair of jeans. This chocolate brown leather is amazing and it will look better and better as time goes by. I really like it when leather has that worn look. I'm still in the factory creating each day and I hope to have a lot to offer on Etsy and at a few local craft shows. Visit my shop at

Back Packing!

Sunday creations,  lots of cutting and sewing today. Just finished up this backpack and I think I really love how it turned out. This chocolate brown leather I found when I went for a little country ride last week and I am putting it to good use. I will definitely have my new creations up on my Etsy shop very soon.

I took another trip to the country and found some really nice icy grey leather. This is a recycled piece that already has that worn look a feel. This is by far my favorite recycled piece to work with and every bag turns out great. I have lots of creating to do!

Pleats Please

So I am still working with this deep burgundy leather. I switched it up and added some pleats to give this clutch texture, this process is time consuming but worth it.

I have very small strips of leather all over my work room and I just can't bring myself to throw them away so I decided to create a bracelet. I love recycling.

Weird Accessory

I was going threw all of the jewelry I've made in the past and found this wrapped wire ring. I created this a few years ago using vintage German beads and silver wire. I never could explain what this was, it's weird but it works.

I LOVE thrift shopping and finding hidden gems. I came across this brass cuff at The Second Helping store and fell in love. I am kicking myself for not buying the matching necklace :(
On another Thrifting adventure I found these lovely gold vintage bangles. The are perfect and one of my favorite.
