Hi. We are Debbie and John, buckskin and beadwork artists living outside Sedona, Arizona in a little community called Cornville.
We have been working with leather and beads for more than twenty years now. We truly enjoy making beautiful pieces of functional art for our customers and always hope you enjoy your new creation as much as we enjoy making it for you.
We do old style leather and beadwork, one piece at a time, by hand, with attention to detail.You may order one of our standard items or ask for something special.We develop our own designs and can work with your ideas.
All of our work is handmade in Arizona and guaranteed by us. Most of our work reflects the styles of the old west, western, mountain man and native american cultures. We are always moving forward and so the needs of contemporary lifestyles become a part of our designs. At the end of the day we think each piece we make is unique, practical and made to use and enjoy for many years.
Elkskin is our primary choice of leather. Buffalo, deerskin, deer tanned cowhide and other leathers are available.
All beadwork is done by us and is available on most items, just ask. We never use production beadwork.
Everything you can think of is not always possible although we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
Everything in our shop is made to order. You will not receive the piece you see in the photos,we will make one similar for you.
All of the hides we use are unique and one of a kind .The color and texture of each hide will vary. Elk hides are a product of nature, blemishes and imperfections are a natural character of the leather. From time to time a particular color may become temporarily unavailable.
Because each hide is different and unique the lids and overlays on the handbags and shoulder bags will not be exactly the same as you see in the made to order picture.
If you see something you would like in a different color, size or style please contact us.
