Handmade Accessories and Help for Etsy Sellers

I live on the outskirts of San Antonio, Texas, where we sip sweet tea and mint juleps while listening to the song of the cicadas and the cooing of the mourning doves. The sky is big and the sun streams into my work area where Frank Sinatra croons and Glenn Miller swings. I am lucky enough to live near a lake where I can go kayaking or sit on the dock and enjoy the view. And it's true what they say, the stars at night are big and bright deep in the heart of Texas! ☆☆☆

I am a multitalented self taught artist in leatherwork, the book arts, painting, and printmaking. I am the sole artisan in my studio and I do it all from cutting the leather to packing it all up.

I love working with leather, which is a material that has been used throughout all of history for durable, lasting quality. I love handbags and accessories, particularly keychains and bracelets. I've been selling my handmade leather key rings for years, and a few years ago, I started making tassels. I hand cut my tassels myself, and then sew them inside and out for durability. Over the years, I have studied the techniques of the world's finest leather goods makers, and have sought to create quality leather goods on a smaller scale.

For my journals, I use fine American made 100% cotton rag writing paper for my journals, both Crane's and Strathmore. In my family we have a saying "You can never have too many notebooks!", and I believe this is true. All of human history has been recorded in the equivalent of a notebook. You need one too so you can document your contribution to humanity. :)

My work has been featured on Design*Sponge, the Nate Berkus show, and the Huffington Post.
