Sharleen Newland's Profile
Hello, I am Sharleen and my business name is Shaterra
When leather bracelets became trendy, I became interested in using my ceramic components as focals on leather bracelets.
This led to an interest in leather crafting. I discovered that other crafters were looking for a better line of leather wristbands and starting selling them. I expanded into key chains and hair clips as well as bracelets.
I have been crafting in one way or another since childhood. My education includes a degree in Textile and Clothing design. I own 4 sewing machines, a knitting machine, and a loom in addition to my 2 kilns!! I am also a published author of several machine embroidery projects and jewelry designs.
You can find my ceramics in a separate store, Shaterra Clay. www.shaterra.myshopify.com
Other interests include gardening, spirituality, nature walks, reading and animals.
