About

Stargazer Mercantile

My ancestors emigrated to Leadville, Colorado during the silver mining rush of the late 1800′s, and there they remained, with a brief split to Denver to open a harness business in the early 1900′s. Living in the West made a real impression on me, and on my artistic style, and I think it shows in my work. My pleasure is to offer quality leather and fur home decor in the historic styles of the American West, as artist, designer and owner of Stargazer Mercantile.

I think of myself as a creative storyteller. I just do it in a different way than most! I thoughtfully choose a historic subject for each item – – say, Bohlin saddles or Chava Guevara boots, as examples – – and I translate the historic techniques and materials used by the original creators into a very special item that you’ll be proud to live with. I create decorative pillows, room accents, table decor, plus other items yet to be imagined. I use only the highest quality traditional materials such as deerskin, cowhide, lizard and snake skin and indigenous furs, such as coyote, fox, beaver and deer. And I use the highest quality crafting techniques, such as tooling, hitching horsehair, buck stitching, lacing, braiding, hand and machine sewing, and I add some very high quality modern techniques as well! The quality of my items is extremely important to me, and I stand behind every item I sell with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Here at Stargazer Mercantile, my focus is history, and my goal is to honor that history by telling the story the way it was meant to be told. I hope that I accomplish that by making beautiful, authentic objects that you will love living with, and by sharing the historic meaning behind each object with you. My art and craft comes from the heart . . . it is an expression of our love and respect for the American West.
