About

Handmade and High Quality

I've always been a little nostalgic. I enjoy going to flea markets and antique shops. I appreciate the quality of many older items and often find myself imagining what it was like to live in that time or how they manufactured the item. Sometimes they are perfect, other times they are perfectly unique. The minor variations are more like the personal signature of the maker and less like a superficial imperfection. I had the opportunity to work on my family genealogy and while most were farmers, I encountered several craftsman including: Weavers, Blacksmiths, Furniture Makers and Stained Glass Artists. I'd like to think in some way I am honoring their genetic gifts and perpetuating their legacies through my Leathersmithing.

I didn't start my adult life as a craftsman and unintentionally stumbled into it later in life, as a hobby at first, and now as full time occupation. I enjoy creating and experimenting to come up with new designs and different ways to combine materials.

I have been a full time Leathersmith for nearly 7 years now and with thousands of sales (mostly in my other shop and at shows) I find myself continually amazed and appreciative that someone would choose to spend their own money on something that I've created with my own hands.

    It's me, all me, from start to finish. I do get the occasional help with color combinations and the loving support and brutal honesty that only family can provide.
