Generally of good quality but a little rough around the edges.

BEAUTIFUL!!! Really love the fur on this wide cuff bracelet. Love the black and beige animal like color combination as well. Reminds me of a zebra. Extremely well made and love that the cuff can be adjusted to fit my wrist for comfort along with beauty!

Purchased as a gift for a very stylish friend who lives in L.A. Buying something made by a local artisan made the gift even more meaningful. Wonderful customer service and will make additional purchases from this seller.

About

UNEARTHED was created in 2007 with the goal to make available and affordable gorgeous exotic leathers typically only found on the high end market.

I have always loved leather, and have always loved fashion. I would drool over the advertisements in fashion magazines and was always drawn to the accessories. I would scan the featues hoping to find that one amazing piece that was stunning and affordable, and never could. So, with experience in jewelry design as well as traditional leatherwork under my belt I decided to forgo the mortgage payment price tags of designer leather goods and just make my own. And now I make them for you, too!

UNEARTHED specializes in offering an extensive array of exceptionally beautiful and hard to find exotic leathers and I am constantly scouring the world for more! I often custom craft, color, and dye leathers to order, and work with a wide array of materials from snake skins and shagreen, to ostrich and lizard, and virtually everything in-between. I try to create contemporary, edgy, streamlined cuffs that will become modern heirlooms.

This is and has been my full time job for a few years now and there is nothing I would rather be doing. I love this shop, I have a deep and abiding love of leather, and have some of the most astoundingly kind (and not to mention stylish!) customers ever. I am so grateful to everyone who has supported the shop over the years and allowed me to do what I adore. I can never thank you enough.
The shop has grown from an experimental adventure grounded in hope and determination into something more amazing than I could have asked for, both in a business sense and on a personal level. I never anticipated the lovely responses from customers, bloggers, celebrities and media outlets, but more so never anticipated how much I would find my own identity in this shop and this work. I live and breath UNEARTHED, and it has come to define a huge part of my life as well as my children's lives, and hopefully one day they will take the reigns and carry what I have begun into a new generation!

Shop policies

Thank you for stopping by! Feel free to contact us with any inquiries you might have, we'd love to hear from you!

We would like to make it known that we purchase our materials from reputable distributors, each with individual trackable records and each officially tagged and numbered from fish and game authorities where required. We DO NOT work with endangered or at-risk species. We also do not work with large game hides.
We are also fully CITES compliant.

A Note from our distributor on our stingray: These skins are a by-product of the local fishing industry as Stingray is a food fish in that area. If it could not be used it would be discarded as waste. All the other skins form part of the food chain & the skins are a by-product. No rare or endangered species are involved.

There are many cultures & religions based in the Far East, the variety of fish caught & eaten is far different to that in the Northern Hemisphere. Likewise the selection of creatures FARMED for their meat is very different. The Tanners ,the Leather Industry & Leather Craftsmen like us use these skins which would otherwise be destroyed as waste.





We hope you enjoy browsing our shop. We have worked extremely hard to bring you pieces which are original, unique, gorgeous, and of the highest quality. We hope the love for our materials and craft shines through.
Enjoy.
