This blue leather clutch is a simple soft leather clutch. The navy blue leather is soft and durable for your everyday needs. What I love about this clutch is its small yet functional in a multi purpose way. It has an extra pocket inside so you can keep all your cards, money and a phone . You are organized all in one place. This small leather clutch is ready to ship and for sale in our Etsy shop (Thunder Rose).
This blue clutch is all handmade and hand stitched.
This is a picture of the inside of this beautiful clutch. As you can see there is an extra pocket inside.
TGIF and welcome to fall! We are feeling awesome fall weather today in Arizona. The very long hot days are coming to a close as the days move by very fast. I woke up this morning to clouds too! Extra special for us.
The rose bush John gave to me last year is still blooming. It has bloomed all summer! It has grown so much and seems to be a very happy camper here.
The morning glories are doing well too! I didn’t think I was going to have any this year because the squirrels ate them all spring but finally after the rains they started popping up in the front garden and the back! So there will be plenty of seeds for next year. 🙂
Of course the art world is our world in so many ways. Everyday we create and create some more. I have to say I really feel grateful for what I do everyday.
In celebrating fall today here is a beaded leather boho turtle bag we created that really brings out fall colors.
What an amazing leather handbag this turned out to be. Our customer wanted really super long fringe. It turned out super cool !
I have decided to learn to play my Native flute. Here is a picture of it.
When I sit in our garden I love to bring my flute. I have started to just breath and blow and make some pretty sounds. I haven’t learned songs. I might not. I might just play with my heart and see how that goes. ❤
Another of my goals is learning how to blog more. Have more interesting content. It will be mostly from my garden and my home right here in Arizona. I am a very simple woman with a very simple life. That is something I am grateful I have cultivated in this lifetime.
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.
This is a small neck bag with beaded chevrons. A very simple and beautiful small leather pouch.
To see more of our small pouches come by our online stores and check out what we have. If you need something special made up just let us know we do special custom orders.

It’s been awhile since I blogged anything. I keep thinking about it but some days are so long I am just not feeling it in the afternoons. It’s Saturday morning and I just finished working on our new online store thunderroseleather.co. It’s a work in progress but I a happy with the new store. It will take some time to get all the products we offer up but of course we do have our Etsy shop (Thunder Rose).
In Arizona we have been having an extreme heat wave that seems to be breaking this week. It has been so hot. We are feeling grateful for a break and praying for rain. It’s been a really tough garden year for sure. The heat, squirrels and gophers have been a huge challenge. So I just said well enough of that. Comes to be a point in time when it’s time to be done. lol…. At least for now.
We have been very busy in the shop making some custom white leather bags this week. Each one has it’s own uniqueness.
I love the long flowing fringe on this white beaded four directions pipe bag.
When I do a four directions beadwork for our customers I always ask where they would like the direction colors to be. There are many tribes and each person likes their colors to fit with their tribe.
This beautiful white leather bag is a special wedding bag. We feel so honored to have our work be with someone on their special day.
Our fringed leather clutches are so cool. I love the bigger size of this one and the simple beadwork makes it elegant. Love all the fringe.
This white boho bag is so unique. We looked for a while to find this beautiful turquoise center piece and finally found just the right one. This white custom bag turned out really beautiful.
This is what John and I have been up to this week among other things. I really love how all of these have turned out. They are all on their way to their forever homes.
If you are looking for a custom bag for a special occasion or for your everyday life come by and contact us. You can find us here.
John and I started this supply store in 2013. We have been making leather bags and doing beadwork for a long time and we sold some of our leather scraps and lace in our finished product shop on Etsy (thunderrose) . We make so many scraps that it was time to create a new shop so our handmade, hand stitched art bags and beadwork art didn’t get taken over by boxes of leather and hanks of beads. So we proceeded to give it a try and are very happy with our decision.
This blog post is from my friend Deanna and it really touched my heart. It was so fun and cool to meet her and Kent. We had good times and I am so grateful for our friendship. We look forward to more good times up ahead! Love you Deanna! Thanks for the Love! ❤
Today I would like to show you one of our latest creations. This handbag has real long fringe on both the front and back of the bag and a beaded turtle done in beautiful earthtone fall colors. The crossbody bag measures 9.5 inches tall (not including the fringe) , 8.5 inches wide , and 2.75 inches deep. It has an extra pocket inside and one on the back of the bag. The tied fringe is 20+ inches long. Not everyone wants their fringe that long so we always make our bags the way you prefer them to be. We are happy to make your bag with shorter fringe , another color and a longer or shorter shoulder strap. The shoulder strap on this bag measures 48 inches making it a great crossbody purse.
The beaded turtle has beaded eagle feathers in the center of the bag.
Here are some pictures.

This week I created a small burgundy leather bag that has a sweet pink and purple heart on it.
I love hearts and decided to bead around this beautiful opaque pink mauve heart that I found in my friend Janice’s shop Flutterbye Bead Supplies .
Next to the heart I added some amethyst Czech fire polished glass beads ( from Flutterbye bead supplies ) and then some beautiful pink and purple glass seed beads that we have have in our bead and leather supply store Thunder Rose Leather.
A few years back after creating many leather handbags and adding beadwork to some of our bags we opened up a leather and bead supply store. Thunder Rose Leather
It has grown a lot and now we sell scrap leather, leather laces , glass seed beads, deer antler tips and a few antler beads. Thunder Rose Leather
Now with that said this week we put together a couple bags with beaded rosettes.
This one started with this sweet beaded heart.
These are work in progress pictures of the heart beadwork I did before attaching it to the burgundy leather bag.
There are so many steps that go into making a handmade, hand stitched leather bag with a beaded rosette.
This small leather bag measures 5.25 inches tall x 4 inches wide . The usable space is 5 inches tall x 3.75 inches wide.
The shoulder strap is adjustable and 48 inches long.
