It's time to head out west...to Arizona, there we'll find John and Debbie from ThunderRoseLeather.
Here's what they have to say about themselves...
"Hi. We are Debbie and John, buckskin and beadwork artists living outside Sedona, Arizona in a little community called Cornville.We do old style leather work and bead work, one piece at a time, by hand, with attention to detail.You may order one of our standard items or ask for something special.We develop our own designs and can work with your ideas. All of our work is handmade in Arizona and guaranteed by us. Most of our work reflects the styles of the old west, western, mountain man and native american cultures. We are always moving forward and so the needs of contemporary lifestyles become a part of our designs. At the end of the day we think each piece we make is unique, practical and made to use and enjoy for many years. Elkskin is our primary choice of leather. Buffalo, deerskin, deer tanned cowhide and other leathers are available. All bead work is done by us and is available on most items, just ask. We never use production beadwork. Everything you can think of is not always possible although we will do our best to accommodate your needs. Everything in our shop is made to order. You will not receive the piece you see in the photos,we will make one similar for you. All of the hides we use are unique and one of a kind .The color and texture of each hide will vary. Elkhides are a product of nature, blemishes and imperfections are a natural character of the leather. From time to time a particular color may become temporarily unavailable. Because each hide is different and unique the lids and overlays on the handbags and shoulder bags will not be exactly the same as you see in the made to order picture. If you see something you would like in a different color, size or style please contact us.
Thanks for buying Handmade! "
Now, let's go shopping!
Check out the beadwork on this black leather tote...amazing.
I love hummingbirds, and I'm lucky enough to have 3 that come to visit every summer. So to have this bag with a beaded butterfly AND awesome fringe???
Here's something new (to me), leather smartphone bags. What a great place to keep your phone (besides your back pocket). A perfect accessory for your casual outfit. And the beaded turtle and more fringe?
Here is my favorite item in their shop, baby moccasins. Such delicate beadwork. And they look so soft. Hmmmm, maybe I need to get a baby so I can get them?
No, thank you.
But don't let that stop you from getting everything you ever wanted...just in time for Christmas!
