While enjoying a lifetime career as a professional horse trainer and competitive rider , I developed a great appreciation for fine leather and classic designs. I began creating bracelets and jewelry from premium leathers, semi-precious stones and beautiful beads. In 2012, I opened a shop on Etsy and since 2013 I have been a major supplier of leather bracelets to EFO, a Canadian-wide equestrian fashion boutique. Leather is classic and timeless and I like to design pieces from traditional to contemporary with a boho, free spirited feel. I love working with leather and beads and creating various designs including some unique and one of a kind pieces that include handmade ceramic focals. These focals are imported from a European potter that specifically creates fabulous equine themed ceramics for my business. I am grateful for the wonderful opportunity to combine my love for fine leathers, beautiful beads, horses and the yoga lifestyle and express these passions through my designs.
