Collection Construction Notes..
The Beaded Cuff Collection are made using a Native American off-loom technique called Peyote Stitch. I hand-bead solid Sterling Silver & Gold beads into intricate inlays, then micro stitch together the leather cuffs. I've made custom closures out of Sterling Silver or 14K Gold in hook/loop style clasps with mini rivets in homage to my apparel design background. Each style is available in different leather colors, and can be made using Sterling Silver, Patina Sterling Silver, or 14K Gold beads and clasps.
The Leather Belts I make are all hand-cut, carved, and dyed with eco-friendly dyes in 9-11oz cowhides. I choose USA Grade A leathers in mid to heavy weights that will make them your favorite belts for life!
