A bit about my product range
Leather jewellery and accessories, from earrings and necklaces to purses and clutch bags. All handmade in Sheffield using off-cuts from local upholsterers, where possible.

I started an Etsy shop because…
I have always loved to craft, I have tried lots of different kinds of skills and techniques over the years and leather became my favourite as it is so versatile. I have used Etsy for years to find handmade and unique gift ideas and having my own shop was an exiting next step for me and my craft.

I feel inspired by…
Being inspired by a love of natural materials and fabrics, I love to work with leather. I like to keep it simple with my designs to let the natural beauty and texture of the leather speak for itself.

When I’m making, I like to listen to…
Ska music. I love to listen to happy music when I’m working.

My favourite product to make is…
Anything that uses my fantastic new toy, my arbor press. I used to make a lot of noise when setting snaps or punching shapes as I had to hammer. Now I use my silent press and it’s fab!

My plans for the future are…
I am always looking for new ideas for my leather working and there are always new techniques to learn!
