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!
