Announcement    Please visit www.EirewolfCreations.com for more designs and better prices!

Full disclosure: My prices on Etsy are higher than on my main website (mentioned above), because Etsy charges higher fees, including on shipping, which is a cost over which I have no control. Starting in July 2019 Etsy also forced sellers to offer free US shipping for items $35 and up, or be penalized in searches. Therefore I had to raise my prices here in order to fold in those costs. International buyers pay shipping on top of this, so you especially will be happier checking my other site. ;-)

Eirewolf Creations offers unique handmade leather masquerade masks, eye patches, cuff bracelets, and accessories for costumes and everyday wear, all designed and crafted by artisan Erin Metcalf. I pride myself on craftsmanship, attention to detail, and excellent customer service.

Please visit www.EirewolfCreations.com for other examples of my work! I welcome commission inquiries.

About EirewolfCreations

On Etsy since 2007

Eirewolf Creations offers unique handmade leather masquerade masks, eye patches, and accessories for costumes and everyday wear.

Eirewolf Creations started with a sculpture class in my mid-20s. I was always creative, but until I started sculpting little maquettes of critters in that fateful class, I didn’t know how naturally 3-dimensional art came to me. One of my very first critters was a whimsical little howling wolf pup, which reminded my sculpture professor of his favorite dog from childhood. He liked it so much, he commissioned me to make a larger-than-life sculpture for him! That was the beginning of my art business.

For several years I continued to sculpt — mostly fantasy creatures like dragons and unicorns, and a species I dreamed up called Dragon Snails. They were fun and fulfilling, and I still love my little critters… but a desire was growing to make wearable masquerade masks and work with leather. I had seen leather masks at Renaissance Fairs before, but had no idea how they were made. It seemed like some strange alchemy that would certainly require special equipment and a workshop. Then one day I found a tutorial online… and discovered that I didn’t have to be a magician to learn this craft! I bought a side of leather and a few basic tools, and I haven’t looked back since.

I love working with leather. I love transforming a material that once belonged to something living — a byproduct of the food industry that might otherwise be discarded — and making it come alive again in a beautiful new incarnation. Cow hide becomes a raven, a cat, a wolf, a dragon — and allows a person to “transform” into that animal as well, for a time, while they wear the mask. Oscar Wilde said, “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”

Leatherworking has a shallow but endless learning curve — it doesn’t take much to get started, but there is always more to learn! I am constantly learning new techniques and looking for ways to improve my craft and take it to the next level. I tend to get bored if I know everything about a topic, but leatherworking is a skill that has the potential to hold my interest for the rest of my life.

While I continue making masks, I am also branching out with my craft and making cuff bracelets, leather jewelry, bags, and costume accessories. Watch my website (www.EirewolfCreations.com) for new designs!

Payment

I accept Paypal, credit cards, Etsy gift cards, Apple Pay, and other payments available via Etsy’s Direct Checkout.

California buyers: State sales tax will be added when you check out. Etsy also collects state sales tax in other states where required.

Shipping

I usually ship items within one business day (unless they are made to order), from California (USA). 

I ship throughout the USA, and internationally to most countries for which Shipsurance makes insurance coverage available (the list is on their website) — except Italy, where I am not allowed to ship leather items, countries which have shipping laws that are burdensome for small businesses like mine, or countries to which the USPS has temporarily suspended delivery for various reasons.

I ship via USPS, First Class Mail Package for small items (like eye patches) and Priority Mail for masks within the United States. I ship via First Class International for buyers outside the U.S. (unless Priority or Priority Mail Express International is requested and paid for). I pay for insurance myself, or personally guarantee my items.

If you are in the U.S. and spend $35 or more in my shop, your order ships free. International buyers: I will combine shipping for multiple items — please send me your postal code and a list of desired items for an accurate shipping cost before purchase. 

I may use Signature Confirmation for items over $100.00 to make sure your purchase reaches the right hands (yours!).

If you pay with Paypal, I will ship to the address Paypal has on file for you. If that address does not match the address given here at Etsy, there may be a delay while we sort it out.

INTERNATIONAL buyers are responsible for any duties, tariffs, or VAT that may be levied by their country's customs office. If you need to know what additional fees or taxes your country may charge before deciding to purchase, please contact your post office or government tax office. I will not declare a purchase as a gift, as I could be held criminally liable for falsifying customs forms.

Please contact me before purchase if you have questions or special requests.

Additional policies and FAQs

Commission inquiries are welcome! (Currently I am only considering commission requests for handmade leather masks, eye patches, and accessories similar to what you see in my shop.)

My leather masks and accessories are designed to handle normal wear, but please don't get them wet or store them misshaped or in direct sunlight, as it can damage them.

These items are created in a smoke-free environment. They are sealed away or displayed in a protective curio cabinet in my home, until the time comes for them to journey to a new home.
