Brace Yourself.

Hey, this is Celeste! What started as a makeshift leather starter kit ended up into a shop! When I bought the initial tools from my local craft store, I picked up tools and hardware of different sizes! I literally had no idea what I was buying, but I bought it! The first things Brandon and I made were… rough, to say the least. (I still have the first bracelet, maybe I’ll show it on Instagram soon?) The rivets were crooked and nearly punched through from the different size setters and caps, and nothing ever was the same because the leather came from a bag of scraps.

We eventually ventured out into buying a nice hide, since it was so frustrating relying on scraps around the time we met one of the most supportive people we know – a member of the group who runs the local Viking Festival. We ended up vending in a tiny spot, squeezed in last minute. We hadn’t planned on really making anything, but it would be a fun thing to do and hopefully be able to move all the work that had, in the meantime, been accumulating in a pile.

That event was surprisingly successful; we had to stay up making more through the night so we could continue the next day! That success helped find the shop – getting actual tools, a bench, good leather, and it flew from there.

This shop is such a passion for us both it’s hard to imagine doing anything else now! We only look to grow, and do everything we can to make this a business.

Thank you for supporting us.

    Hey there! I started Swift Hammer Leather as a way to put myself through college. After success at local events, I decided to work on Swift Hammer full-time. I make and design every item by hand while focusing on detail & quality.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Send us a message if you would like any custom work. We make corsets, wallets, bike seats, archery gear, and much more. We will discuss all aspects of design, as well as go over a timeline. If you decide to go through with a custom order, we require 50% of the payment before work is to be started, which is refundable up until work on your project starts, or up until any special materials we buy for your project has been paid for. In that time, you may cancel without penalty. Upon completion, the remaining half of payment is due before shipping.

Sizing details

Please send us your wrist size so we can make your perfect fit. All items are made to order. To get your correct measurement, use a measuring tape, or non-stretchy string or yarn to wrap comfortably around your wrist. If using string, mark or cut the string at your desired length and compare the length against a flat ruler. Don’t wrap too tight or too loose, and make sure you’re still able to use your arm/hand by flexing and moving the wrist while holding onto the string/measuring tape. Use either inches or centimeters, just let us know which one you're using. Also, please do not measure a cuff, bracelet or any other wrist accessory that you already own – this can cause miscalculations and may end up an imperfect fit.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Our standard shipping will come in a white cardboard shipping box, with tissue paper cushioning the item and providing a layer of protection. If the item is small, we may ship it in a flat shipping envelope.
