My Story (thus far)

I started my first Etsy shop 7 years ago. I was making custom bridal and costume pieces and I loved what I was doing until my husband gave me a few leather tools for Christmas one year.

Something clicked like never before and I was suffering from full-blown obsession, I was on a quest to learn everything I could! I watched Youtube videos, poured over a stash of old how-to books a friend pulled from the trash, and spent many hours toiling away in my studio. I swapped out my sequins and feathers for leather and tools, and re-opened my store as Tilt Adornments, unique leather accessories for women and men.

I pull inspiration for my designs from everything around me, it could be an era like the 20s or 70s, a movie, a person on the street, historical costumes, whatever! But one source of inspiration stands out among the rest, the beautiful leather work that comes out of Mexico- my hat is off to you!
I almost exclusively use vegetable tanned leather. It is the most environmentally friendly, using tannins found in tree bark, fruits and leaves. This process also leaves leather in its natural state, showing it's flaws and grain, giving each hide a unique quality. With a little TLC (treat it with leather conditioner once a year), your purchase from Tilt can last a long time!

    Since I was knee high to a glue gun, I've been honing my skills creating braided ribbon barrettes and eggshell mosaic boxes. The need to conquer all things craft led me to discover leather work, and now I'm hooked.
