I’m a free form and traditional style bead artist whose life and home is the

Goldstream Valley in the heart of the Interior of Alaska.

I am a wife,

mother of 6 and co­-owner / creator at Baked Alaskan Designs on

Etsy.  I am an active member of the Deadhead Art Alliance team and a leader on the

I am a bead work and leather work artist living outside of Sedona Arizona with my husband John and our fur baby Rosie. We have a beautiful daughter and 4 Grandchildren that we adore. I created this blog for our business Thunder Rose Leather and for heartfelt moments in time. We do old style leather and bead work , one piece at a time, by hand, with attention to detail. We develop our own designs and can work with your ideas. At the end of the day we think each handmade piece is unique, practical and made to use and enjoy for many years. I have made many friends along the way and it is so fun to enjoy each others company while making art and doing business. I want to say thanks to all my friends that I have made along the way. I am so grateful for you. You truly enrich my life. Blessings! Debbie Thunder Rose
