Happy Friday

It’s Friday again and we are almost a week into the new year . Happy New year to all ! 2017 treated us well , sometimes it was a wild ride but that is life. Comes and goes. We just ride the waves.

John and I decided to simplify our life , which is pretty simple anyway  but sometimes online life and wearing so many different hats can really be a hoot of an experience.

I probably told you about starting up a new website last year. Well because of not being able to find ourselves in search we had to make the decision to move. Honestly if you can’t find yourself in search , well you are not gonna get found. Even though starting over is sometimes hard, it is also necessary. So that is what we did. ūüôā

We love our Etsy shop. It’s our baby and does well for us. We also have a need to not have all our eggs in one basket due to so many reasons. We learned this lesson a long time ago in business. We also enjoy having a site that we are in control of, so when the winds of change happen , and believe me they do, we have something to fall back on.

If you would like to see our new website here is a link thunderroseleather.co.

I have been working on some new beadwork designs that I hope to get done sometime in the next few months. I am looking real forward to creating them. Right now they are being cultivated and grown in my heart and mind lol ūüôā .

We for the first time have introduced fuschia ( pink) leather. Wow , it is really pretty. Take a look

One of our favs this year has been wolf paw medicine bags.

I created this one in black leather with a blue wolf paw for one of my customers.  This is a work in progress picture. I love doing work in progress pics.

Happy New Year Blessings to all!

Ready to ship gift ideas

Good morning friends! I hope everyone had a beautiful day of giving thanks!¬† During these holidays John and I really try to stay at a steady pace. So everything we make is very well made and there is no OMG stress. In our online stores most everything is made to order. But this year we have some “READY TO SHIP SECTIONS”. We have been making the things we make for over 25 years and have learned there is no way to have every single thing we make sitting there ready to ship out .

This year we have ready to ship leather handbags, beaded handbags , medicine bags wallets, and a few pair of baby moccasins. You can find all of these sections in our ETSY SHOP THUNDER ROSE , in the first three sections after the ON SALE section. Just so you know we are running a sale. When you buy $30. or more you receive 20% off.

We are no longer making promises for things to get to you by Christmas that are made to order. But the ready to ship items go out in one or two days. No problem.

Sometimes we are running a little ahead of schedule but not always. In the end we just want to make sure everyone gets something quality made. So that is what we do.

Here are some things that we have in our ready to ship sections.

Special medicine bags

Over the years we have designed and made a lot of different styles , sizes and kinds of medicine bags / amulet bags for our customers. Each individual has a purpose and reason why they need a special bag in their life. Some are for a special stone, crystal or medicines ( like sage, cedar , tobacco or whatever is their favorite). ¬†They can be used to keep a special piece of jewelry in while traveling. There are so many ways to use them. The reason to say “special medicine bags ” is because they are special , just for you or can be given as a gift and cherished forever.

I do many beaded medicine bags. Some with totems of a special kind like wolf paw totems, bear claw totems , turtle totems or sometimes just a nice colorful chevron. Whatever speaks to your heart.

This week I worked on a sweet small white buckskin medicine bag that has a lot of glass crow beads and tin cones on it. I liked it so much I made another one and added it to our shop . It dances and sings. Why? Because of the long fringes with the beads and cones. They jingle a nice song!

This kind of special medicine bag can be worn around the neck or it could be used for home decoration. It would be a special keepsake gift for a special friend.

Take a look.

Beaded fringed medicine bag

We have created  many things this week. One of my favorites is the brown medicine bag with the beaded sunflower, double cut fringe off the bottom of the bag and a 36 inch neck strap. What is a medicine bag? That is something I used to be asked when I did art shows.  We have sold these bags to many people from all over the world. They would tell us I need this for my favorite stone, crystal, carved fetish, to keep my wedding rings in while traveling or even the tooth fairy. Yes , the tooth fairy. I thought what a cute idea. Making losing a tooth an even more special event.

 I have used mine to keep a special feather, rock , medicine like sage, cedar or whatever in. It all depends on what your needs are.  You can make a special prayer and wear it or carry it with you reminding you of what your intent is. So medicine bags or amulet bags are totally multi purpose.

John and I have a lot of different sizes and kinds of medicine bags. Some are beaded some are plain, we make custom ones to fit the needs of our customer friends. Sometimes we put a turtle, bear claw or wolf totem on. I also do four direction beadwork with your colors where you like them.

Recently we found some carved antler tips from a friends store Ted Parker from Antler and Ivory and I made this small medicine bag.
