Pick Your Guard

I haven’t painted a single thing in weeks because I am in love with leather. It’s true. We are having an affair and she is a high-maintenance partner, which is to say I am spending all my money on things to make her beautiful–tools, dyes, stains, finishes, clasps, hides, lace, inserts and more! Some markets better roll around soon and finance this fling.

In the meantime, I’m setting up an etsy shop to (hopefully) sell some stuff online. There’s nothing listed yet, but I will soon have wallets, necklaces, earrings, hair combs, custom pickguards (like the one above) and more at undertheleather.etsy.com (I desperately wanted hideandchic, but it’s taken). Check me out at the end of next week!
