ceruleanJAY is taking a short break

Loading

Note from shop owner I am taking a break to have twins: coming out October 30. I will be back in a couple weeks. I will try my best to respond to any questions you may have, but I am not taking on any new orders at this time. Can't guarantee getting things made and sent in a timely fashion, so I am closing the shop until the babies are home, safe, and letting me have time to make stuff again! Thanks for looking and hope to see you later!

Amazing pouch-beautifully crafted and incredibly soft. It's apparent a lot of love was put into creating it. The details are wonderful and it's an easy, wearable piece of art. ••••••••Many thanks••••••••

About

Hand Stitched with Love

I started working with leather when I was 10 years old. My first project was a pair of soft sole center seam moccasins. I wore them until they had holes in the soles. They were the most wonderful outdoor shoes I had ever had. I made another pair exactly the same and wore these to shreds as well.

I got back into leather working about 4 years ago. Leather is a wonderful, natural material that ages well, providing the quality of leather is good. I only use high quality full grain or top grain leather for my projects. This makes my products thick and strong.

I like to think that the hand stitching makes my pieces stand out from something ordinary and factory manufactured. I use a synthetic sinew and every hole is hand punched with an awl and stitched together with my own hands. As a result, each item is a bit unique, and was thoughtfully created. I don't strive for perfect stitching. Instead, I try to bring out the character of the leather with each piece.

    I like MAKING things. Obviously. But now my house is filling up, so I thought I should try to share my passion for making lovely and beautiful products with people who could enjoy them. End goal? Do this full time!
