I had this bracelet saved to buy for later but when I went back to buy it, much to my disappointment, it had already sold. I messaged Arnica to see if she'd be making more and she not only quickly responded, she also asked me my wrist measurement and made one personally for me! Not only that, I wanted to have it by a specific date so she made it quickly and had it sent to me in record time. To say that I love the quality, creativity, and durability of this bracelet would be an understatement. Arnica's generosity and friendly service will not be forgotten and I hope to buy more from her in the future!

Leather, Stones, Natural Beauty and Knots too!

From a young age I crafted jewelry and other items from leather, polished stones and other gorgeous natural items -- shells, sea glass, feathers, you name it. I also began to learn about the joy of knots.

My move from the USA to Europe gave me an opportunity to acquire world famous Spanish leather -- soft, durable and totally wonderful to braid and knot.

All of my creations begin from scratch. I travel from my home in Gibraltar up into the mountains of Spain to purchase entire hides of beautiful Spanish leather. I hand cut each piece of leather to fashion my jewelry.

I enjoy all sorts of braids and knots, but my favorite are Celtic Knots -- they are so very beautiful and expressive.

CUSTOM ORDERS: I'm always delighted to create something new. If you wish to have an item in a different size than the one on offer in the shop, please convo me. Also, don't hesitate to get in touch if you have an idea for an original creation -- who knows what glorious things we might be able to produce.

I hope you enjoy your visit and that you'll become a new customer.

    I was raised near Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Beautiful leather jewelry was everywhere. When my folks gave me a rock polisher as a child it sparked a life-long love of polished stones. That was the start of my jewelry making craft.
