This was a gift for my boyfriend for his birthday, and he loves it. I wanted something simple but not too simple, and this is perfect. I didn't think he was ever gonna trade in his old wallet, but he did right away!

About

I am hooked on leather.

My love affair with leather began in 1970 while in college. With a $25 investment, which was a pretty big chuck of my monthly spending money, and some encouragement from a leather supplier in Denver I was on my way. I immediately became enamoured with the texture, grain and feel of fine leather. It is a product that has endless possibilities for creativity.

Since leather is really a by-product of a major food source I feel good about putting it to use. If the hides were not tanned into usable leather they would end up rotting in a landfill.

As you can see from my shop I still make some "retro" items that have remained popular since my early years of leathercrafting. I also work to keep up with current trends with cases for small electronics and phones.

I am a one person shop and make everything from start to finish. I do not use kits so the first step in making my items is to hand cut the pattern from one of the many hides that fill my workshop. There are many more steps that follow and I enjoy each and every one. After all these years I have not grown tired of my leather work.

I believe that leather is a luxury that should be loved and enjoyed. Unlike many things it actually gains character with age and use.

    I am born and raised in New Jersey and have never lived anywhere else. I am proud to be a true "Jersey girl". I began working with leather back in the 1970's during my hippie phase and have continued ever since. I guess I am a "one trick pony" as I have never tried any other type crafts.
