Good morning friends! It’s Monday again . Today I would like to show you a very special clutch I made last week. It was a process like all of our bags. The bead work on this one was fun and I love the way the orange sunflower turned out. The turquoise background really makes the beaded flower stand out. I love beading! Anyway here is the clutch…..
This white leather clutch with a beaded sunflower and long fringe front and back measures 4 inches tall , 7 inches wide and 1.5 inches deep. The leather is soft and strong . This leather clutch purse is decorated with turquoise blue glass crow beads and the closure is a leather tie that wraps around the clutch. This is a one pocket bag and fits a phone and a few other things it just depends on what your needs are.
It’s Thursday afternoon this hot summer day in Arizona and I just finished this beautiful chocolate brown leather bag / fringed boho bag with a beaded dragonfly. The dragonfly is beaded in silk purple , forest green, silk green and silver lined gold seed beads. The background is purple leather. This boho / gypsy style handbag has long fringe that is decorated with purple glass crow beads. The bag measures 6 inches tall and 5 1/2 inches wide and has a 48 inch 4 point braided strap that is perfect for wearing crossbody. Of course if you would like you strap shorter or longer please just contact us and let us know we are happy to help you out.
The dragonfly totem makes this leather bag magical. It would make a great phone bag , medicine bag or perfect for going out and only carrying a few things.
As you can see from the pictures I added some gold glass beads around the dragonfly to express how magical dragonflies are. It gives it a little extra light.
It’s a beautiful afternoon in sunny Arizona. There has been a lot going on here at our home. The gardens are in. We have some new bags to show you but today I would like to show you this one. I love this bohemian, tribal , handmade handbag. This bag has lots of long fringe and is made in soft palomino leather. I love the way the beaded bear paw sits in the corner of the bag. I beaded the bear paw in black and brown glass seed beads.

Now a little something from our garden.

This year John and I put a fence in the front of our home. We decided to have a container garden along the fence but leave it open so Rosie can run and play. A zen garden. We did plant in our raised beds in the back and I will show those in another blog post.
We are all really enjoying this new space we created. It will be fun to watch it grow and change over the years.
A leather messenger bag with a beaded turtle would be a great bag for a special gift for someone who loves to travel with their laptop and some other important papers or for those of you who really enjoy a large bag.
Our shops are all made to order so you can order this bag with a bead work of your choice or no bead work at all. The flat strap can be made at any length you are comfortable with. This bag is for a man or a woman. It is a very sturdy and functional handbag made of elkskin leather.
Good Day! It’s Saturday morning and I thought I would do a small blog post. I’m new to blogging on WordPress but I have decided to learn more about it. My name is Debbie and I am a buckskin and bead work artist living outside of Sedona, Arizona. My husband John and I have been doing this for over 20 years now. John designs custom handmade handbags and does leather work and I do bead work and leather work. We make a variety of different things from leather handbags, leather totes, beaded baby moccasins, flute bags, pipe bags, leather cuffs and much more. Here are some photos of what we do.
