Fringed Leather Tote with Beaded Turtle

Good morning! My blog has a new look. I found out that my old theme was going out so I had to decide what theme to use. It’s not that easy to pick one. Long story short, tada! Hopefully when I publish all will look great. In the world of computers there are always  changes to keep up with. Just like life……. 🙂

A while back I posted on our facebook page a beaded turtle work in progress picture. I have finished the beaded turtle and made a tote for it to live on. That is what I would like to show you today. All the pictures have a link back to this bag.

This bag has recently SOLD. If you would like a custom beaded bag contact us here Thunder Rose Leather

This bag has been listed on our website thunderroseleather.co  It is ready to ship with free shipping. This leather tote is all hand stitched. It all started with a work in progress turtle. See the pic below.

The beaded turtle has a beautiful turquoise cabochon in the center as a focal point. The beads next to the turquoise cabochon are fire polish glass beads I purchased from Janice at Flutterbye Bead Supply on Etsy.  The seed beads are size 11 and I sell them in our bead and leather supply store Thunder Rose Supplies.

It all started right here .

Measurements on this tote are 10 inches tall x 10 inches wide x 2 3/4 inches deep. It has an extra pocket inside. This leather tote makes a great everyday bag. I carry one this size and love it.

As you can see there is a lot of room. I wear mine crossbody and I find it very easy to open and close with the antler tip closure. It is very easy and convenient to get in and out of and the antler tip closure is very secure.

This beaded leather tote is waiting for it’s new home.

Thanks for taking a look . Comments are welcome!

Love , light and peace!

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.

Leather bead art custom bags in white

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.

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.
