Belt Pouches for Your Mobile Devices

Cell phones and smart phones have become a necessary device for most of us. 
We carry them with us all the time and we never want to leave them behind!
Larger, slimmer and often a bit bendable in-pocket; wrapping it in soft, protective leather is my answer for keeping your phone safe but handy!
I've designed a case that will accommodate devices ranging from the classic iPhone to the larger Android and iPhone 6P - you can even carry two at a time! 
This soft leather case comes in a variety of colors and features 2 roomy pockets and a belt-loop for hands-free carrying.

There are ports on the bottom of the larger pocket for speaker and plug-ins.
I'll be adding more colors over the coming weeks.
You can see the current listings in my Belt Pouch section in my Etsy shop.
Larger pouches are available on request.

Totally Totes!

If you saw my last post, you know I've discontinued my Earth Medallions for the time being.

Well, I can't just walk away from all these beautiful stones in my stash box, can I? 
So I've decided to incorporate them into bags - here are the first two examples of a tote bag that closes with a strap that's passed through a stone and leather loop.

The oxblood bag is accented with a Wild Horse stone - a great compliment to the color! With the chocolate-brown bag, I decided on a bold contrast with a round piece of Amazonite.
There will be more, of course; it's going to be fun to showcase these lovely nuggets this way.
These bags were recently listed in my Etsy shop - watch for new additions soon!

Earth Medallions are Ending

With a tinge of sadness, I'm announcing that my Earth Medallions are ending. 
Though I love making these beauties, it's gotten difficult and pricey to obtain the special leather that I use for the process.
I have these plus a few others left in my Etsy shop (linked at the top of the left sidebar); when they are gone there will be no more for awhile.
I hope to locate a new source for this leather in the new year, so maybe they will return in the future... maybe not. Time will tell. 
Meanwhile, watch soon for new bags and other fun creations!

Mehndi-Inspired "Henna Series" Cuffs

It's not uncommon for me to get so caught up in what needs to be done that I lose track of beloved pet projects...
A couple of years ago, prompted by a request from a client who was looking for unique wrist-wear, I started what I lovingly called my Henna Series; leather wristbands inspired by mehndi, that glorious art of drawing on the body with henna-based dyes.

Alas, after making a few and having them very well-received, I got busy with necessary tasks and let the collection dwindle and vanish.
The time has come again to renew the series.
Creating these is a meditative experience; each design is built one bit at a time, making each piece a one-of-a-kind work of art.
 There is something very satisfying about working on pet projects! :-)
With a great deal of reverence and respect for the tradition that inspired me, I've posted several new cuff bracelets to my Etsy shop. 
You can find them here
