this is the time of year that I have a bit more time to work on my process. when I am busy creating for upcoming shows, I get overwhelmed and the process goes out the door. i jump from one project to another and often can't compete things because something else needs to be done first.
under perfect conditions, I like to have straps, tags, and pouches ready to go, and that can be easier said than done...so many little things to tend to
bella studio leather tags that must be cut and heat-stamped,
leather straps for crossbody purses and totes need to be cut and fitted with clips and brads,
cowhide tags cut and punched for earrings,
and then there's the pouches for jewelry items that need to be dip-dyed, rinsed, ironed and stamped (I really can't believe how much time those bags take) but that is important to me, and I love when customers get all excited about them!
so many details go into making my designs one-of-a kind....and those little things are what make each piece completely and beautifully...
