My name is Junie and my passion is working with and designing all things leather.
At the moment I am working hard making stock items in my workshop to list in my Etsy store and on my own website.
I have to date completed several clutches and different handbags.
I have recently designed a new Sunglasses Case and have put together a few ideas for
leather and silver bracelets having found suppliers for the silver findings in Portugal.
I have quite a few designs on paper for other items, some of which are other smaller leather goods like make up bags, micro Dr. bags, Guitar straps and bespoke leather steampunk accessories and waist corsets.
I also had an ‘unexpected’ custom order request before I had even started my business which resulted in one very happy lady having a custom luxury leather handbag handmade for her to her own specifications!
I have discovered my passion for leather quite recently and am completely self taught.
Being a visual learner I like to be hands on when learning new skills.
My inspiration mainly comes from all things fashion, the Arts and yes some celebrities … but mostly from my own wish list of items that I would like to have in my wardrobe but a lass I either cannot find them or I do not have the money to buy them.
Fashion and art have been with me all my life. When I was younger I made my own clothes and soft accessories. I still alter my clothes now and I know that the knowledge in needlecraft that I learnt when I was very small has enabled me to now work confidently with leather.
The bonus was that I found ‘my passion’ working with leather and it never fails to excite me and inspire me to create.
