Life is short, so we grew MonardaZ!

I've always been interested in the creative process, and have worked in many media, including wood, paper, and metal - more recently, leather. But I've always relied on the outside workaday world for living expenses. At a certain point, my wife and I agreed that since life is so short, we should spend our days doing what we love. MonardaZ was the happy result of that decision.

We offer leather accessories, completely hand made and hand dyed, many featuring our own interpretation of the Steampunk style. On our website, MonardaZ. com, you can also Build Your Own with our easy to use format, and pay for the custom listing on Etsy. Our offerings now include wooden objects and one of a kind Steampunk table lamps.

A few years ago we built our workshop so that we could move everything out of the basement and control some of the clutter and dust. At that point I was still working "outside". I needed the calm tranquility that the workshop provided, so we named it the Harbor.

The Harbor is a stand alone structure with lots of storage. It's outfitted with all the tools, hardware, and power equipment I need. There's a loft, which I use for storage, and a nice transom window over large doors. It is the perfect area for woodworking, painting, repairs, upholstery, etc. Of course, I "steampunked" it up!

When I started to get interested in leather, I created more workspace back in the basement to house all my leather tools, a workbench, and storage for all of the items used in creating leather accessories. I feel lucky to have two spaces for my work, and I'm very happy to be able to share what I make with you at MonardaZ. Thank you for stopping by.

Welcome to MonardaZ!

If you're looking for Mark and he's not in his workshop, check the leather chair in the living room. But don't be surprised if he doesn't look up right away.

He'll be drawing in one of the many of leather-covered journals that he's filled over the years. Mark has the kind of mind that's continually seeing possibilities for home furnishings, room design, accessories, gift containers, jewelry, carved objects, and more. Much of what he draws eventually comes to life.

Currently, Mark has been making variations on leather accessories, especially phone cases and mini bags. He's also been busy upcycling materials into Steampunk table lamps. Mark's playful wooden Steampunk tissue boxes are also now available for purchase on MonardaZ at Etsy
You can also build your own phone case, mini bag, or key chain!  We've made it easy. To set up a custom listing on MonardaZ at Etsy, please go to Take a look at the phone cases and mini bags we offer.  Choose a style, color, size, strap and other features just by clicking on Build Your Own. We'll take care of making the MonardaZ at Etsy listing for your order and you can buy from MonardaZ at Etsy as usual Your accessories can and should reflect who you are.

Please check back with MonardaZ from time to time to see what has leapt from the pages of those journals.
