Setting goals and sticking to them …

IMG_5169

It’s true. I am obsessed with sewing on this machine, it’s an industrial machine and it’s quite like driving. Sometimes it does not cooperate with me, and other days this dear little engine is very nice … Either way I always pray a little beforehand because sewing leather is hard enough, I don’t need more […]

iPhone 5 Purses

DSC_0941

If you can remember a while ago I designed those iPhone wallet necklaces…and now it was time for a purse that could fit the iPhone 5, plus a little wiggle room. Meaning you can fit more stuff in there, and wear it as a purse. You can see the older iPhone 4 bags, and visually […]

Snakeskin Envelopes

DSC_0852

New in, snakeskin calf-hide purses. Slightly updated versions of the original envelope designs. Right now I love these chain straps, kind of thin but still strong, and these are detachable so you can carry it as a clutch. And these closures are finished with leather cords, but actually it’s more for embellishment, the real closures […]

Christmas wishes…

Photo above features Camo leather lunchbox bag by Logan Zane, and the new Samsung Galaxy Camera phone. Did you know recently I lost my phone, was really torn up about that, it was the iPhone 4 and so I was forced to make a decision. Get the iPhone 4 again (a new one that insurance […]

Going Purse-less

IMG_4180

Recently I’ve noticed a surge of women not taking to purses, leaving more at home, and only bringing essentials. You may think the items in my photo below are my essentials. They are not actually. Or the cigarette box and lipstick are not, haha. The box and lipstick are shipping necessities for the Motovest. As […]

Black Crocodile

DSC_0425

This updated design is another spinoff on those crocodile bags, remember those? When I went to Staples for inspiration? Well this time I had to go all black on black on black, with those crocodile style wallet necklaces… Now I had to follow a similar design strategy to that same post, to treat this crocodile […]

iPhone Wallet Necklaces

DSC_4087

It has been quite a long time since I first thought of the idea behind this post. Do you remember when Steve Jobs passed? (Yes that was rhetorical, sorry)…. I planned on doing this whole tribute post, designing accessories around all of the beautiful gadgets he’s created. But I can’t rush such things, everything needs […]

Mobile Accessory

DSC_0407_2

When I first created this wallet necklace style, I just had one simple idea in mind. To find a solution for a personal problem of mine. Always running around like a crazy person, or working like a crazy person, I need to have important things like a credit card, keys, and cash close by. And […]

Wallet Necklaces

DSC_0047

So, how was everyone’s New Years? All I can say is that I’m starting this year off slow and simple. This post and the design is pretty light but that’s exactly how I want to start off. I have some other projects I’m working on that are unrelated to this blog so give me some […]

Paper Crocodile

DSC_0058

For a while I had all these gorgeous crocodile skins at my disposal. As I kept getting new ideas for other materials, these precious hides just sat in my studio, what can I say? I was empty on ideas for how to proceed…in fact I wondered, why did I even buy these? Well, fast forward […]

Seamless Micro Purse

DSC_0153

Went on a little vacation, completely emptied out my bedroom (threw out everything except for the extreme essentials) and because of the heat wave this past week I lost 10 lbs by default-I’m feeling very light. It’s been so hot that the thought of eating anything grosses me out, which is why I couldn’t even […]

Changeability

DSC_3230

Things I’m thinking about: Changeability and lighter designs for spring. Changebility to me just means designing something so that the wearer can customize it to their liking.. …Some new mini mink tails I’ve designed for this season..Loved this fine grey mink, I was originally going to use it for one jacket but decided to create […]

Travel Bag

DSC_7806

I was stressed about packing for an upcoming trip, especially with having to bring my laptop and several cameras and it occurred to me that since I won’t be packing any electronics into my suitcase (it always gets stolen at the airport) I needed one bag that could hold these things without the fuss. On […]

Nikon D90 Camera Bag

DSC_4097

It occurred to me recently that I spent a good deal of time thinking about how to make an iPad bag, yet the iPad is a lot less important than my Camera. I’ve been wanting to make a camera bag for a while now, I take my camera out as much as I can…. A […]

iPad Bag

DSC_0097

I was recently gifted an iPad (very ironic because a while ago I had been running around the week before my friend’s wedding to get her this and they were SOLD OUT everywhere) and even though I still think its a giant iPhone (or a laptop with no keyboard) I decided I’d make the most […]

Eye Clutch

collage

The stingray I used for this clutch had this center white mark, which kind of reminded me of an eye, I decided to play off that and use it as inspiration for this bag… Some materials, studs, inspiration images.. I focused more on shape for this bag, wanted something ovular to play off the naturally […]

White Leather Purse

DSC_0280

The weather has gotten so hot that while I was designing this bag I thought of words like “cool” “fresh” “icy” and I kept all these words in my head while I was making it. I wanted it to be a small/casual bag for summer time. The chains are actually aluminum covered in oxidized …
