About TheGildedPoppyShop

Sales 58
On Etsy since 2018


My name is Denise Cozzitorto. I've been a Northern California native my whole life.
I live just outside of Sacramento county with my small family.

I've been making a creating since I was a very young child. I've studied photography, and fine art in school. Sewing and crocheting have always been my stronger suits, but I love learning new skills and adding them to my maker repertoire.

​I've been selling my wares online and at different Indie Art & Craft shows, in the NorCal and the Bay Area since 2002.

​The Gilded Poppy is my newest love, and came to be in 2017.
I have a passion for coming up with unique and outside-the-box ideas, while also experimenting with new processes and techniques.

I'm inspired by California's beautiful coast line, sea animals and all the iconic images surrounding this beautiful state I live in.

​I love working with leather because each item I create becomes it's own individual art piece. I also love experimenting with traditional clay techniques, like carving, stamping, but applying them to leather to create a similar aesthetic.

​Currently most of my leather pieces come from high quality leather cow hide scraps, re-purposed leather clothing, or natural vegetable tanned leather from the US... making each piece one of of kind and sustainable.

Thank You for supporting the maker community!
