Living in Canada I have had many inspirations from the cultures around me. Beautiful Native art and leather beaded jewelry is a big inspiration. Native leather jewelry is so creative and colourful. The craftsmanship and the bead work is so beautiful. The native people are so beautiful and their artistic talent in paintings , sculptures, footwear, is a treat for the eyes. I felt inspired to do my own style in leather jewelry. The native ladies that I met had their own creations they made and wore. She had beaded dangle earrings that were stunning and so inspiring. Native art and the animals depicted in it has such vibrant colours, it just makes me smile.
My favourite doll growing up was native made and she was beautiful in her leather beaded dress and her long black braided hair. She had little beaded jewelry too.
Another inspiration is Japanese art and the cherry blossom which started in China and flourished in Japan. The most beautiful flower. You will see that inspiration is my floral pin and earring sets and my floral rings.
To be inspired by the beauty around you and the multi cultural influences is a gift. I wanted to make my leather and faux leather jewelry unique and I am sure my customers will be pleased with the style, colour, and the light easy wear. The customers i have in this new business are giving such wonderful feedback. They can’t believe how light they are! Some have forgotten them on and slept wearing their leather and faux leather jewelry. I myself have too so it is important to wear the rubber backs that come with the sheep hook earrings. I would love to see pictures of my beautiful customers of all ages, sizes,gender, and colours wearing my jewelry. Please send me your picture wearing my jewelry and it could go into my gallery page for all to see. I am grateful for the beauty around me and the beauty in me that i can create these leather and faux leather pieces for you.
Why should you buy leather jewelry or faux leather jewelry?
My leather jewelry and faux leather jewelry are all artist handcrafted. The style and colours are limited and have lots of colours to choose from. They are well made and will last a long time with proper care. They are light comfortable and easy to wear. Are you are tired of heavy jewelry that you can’t wait to take off? Are you tired of the pulling on the earlobes from your earrings or the heavy weight pulling on your neck from your necklace? I had stopped wearing heavy jewelry and found that light weight jewelry was hard to find. Having fibromyalgia has made me sensitive to the weight and feel of my jewelry and my clothing. I need comfortable light clothes that are stylish and my jewelry needs to be comfortable, light and stylish too. I made leather and faux leather jewelry that is comfortable and looks great! You will feel great in my jewelry too.
