When I design the leather items that I make, I strive to preserve the simplicity and raw authenticity of the leather itself. I don’t use anything other than genuine leather in my products, and I allow the inside surfaces and stitching on the products to be visible. The intricate rows of stitching and the beautiful natural underside of the leather add character and compliment the aesthetic of the leather goods.…

Socially responsible silver & gold jewelry Ever since I was a young girl, I have enjoyed creating three dimensional art from found objects – whatever is within reach. I’ve fashioned huge sculptures using empty soda cans and suspended them from a ceiling, made stylish outfits using scraps of fabric and a stapler (ouch!) and spent hours “baking” mud pies in my back yard.…

American Artists & Artisans We believe American creativity and talent are second to none.
