BeadedSpirit's Shop Announcement

Inspired by her dream, Kathy Kershaw's Hailstorm Horse©s are vibrantly colored horses created by using dye-base pigments on a variety of leather purses, pouches, and wallets. "Hailstone" seed beads sewn on the animals make them true Hailstorm Horses© and Animals.

Kathy offers her unique artwork on two lines of leather items:

"The Traditionals" (no zippers). Kathy designs, hand cuts the leathers, sews, and embellishes each of her genuine leather purses and pouches. She has a keen eye for balancing the colors and textures of the leathers she uses in each unique bag. Using her skill and high attention to detail Kathy produces the stylish, durable, one-of-a-kind purses and pouches that she then embellishes with her own Hailstorm Horse© artwork.

"The Moderns" (with zippers). Kathy implements the use of high quality leather bags and wallets she procures from outside sources. She uses these leather items as a "canvas" for her artwork.

Each and every piece of either line offered is made of genuine leather and is individually hand decorated by Kathy Kershaw in her Midwest home/studio.
