This past week I had the pleasure of shooting my friend Grace for my new collection. With only a 2-hour advanced notice, she naturally gave me her best in every shot. We scouted a lovely location and were elated to find the homeowner willing to allow strangers to roam around his property.
And so, without further adieu, I present my latest work, The Essentials, with hopes that you will also appreciate the spontaneity that went into it.
Simple shapes and classic styles inspired the collection. Minimalism in mind, I wanted to build a repertoire of fundamental elements. Building blocks for a timeless wardrobe. Adding to this, the underlying message that sustainability can be beautiful.

Ironically I topped the year off with a black bag. Most would probably think this is where a designer would start, simple and classic. But I like to say I’m working up to better and best.
I do love every piece I make, and my craft becomes more passion filled as I go along.
The Black on Black bag, it’s in the shop.

Buy handmade this year.
Ok now that I said the most important part, here’s the icing:
My dry goods shop is updating weekly with new leather goods.
New, oh so cool necklaces, cross body leather bag, and minimalist wallets (wallets debut on Friday).
Because generosity is, for some reason, triggered only during this time of year – possibly induced by food comas – I’m having a store-wide holiday sale.
Subscribe to be the first to know when the 48 hour sale goes live. Why? Quantities are limited folks.
I hope your Thanksgiving includes other people and a Polaroid camera. My Instax is loaded and ready to go.
Sending love to you all. Really.
This necklace may actually be functional if you are an old IT gal/guy. Old as in experience, not in years. If you are able to ID the hanging charms on these necklaces, you and my dad may likely have long conversations about T1′s while your beepers go off. Oh that’s right, you’re on call.
This is a fun one to wear, ad it is quite unusual, in a good way. Nothing prissy about it. I made it in tribute to my dad who rubbed his technical know-how off on me.
Available now in the Freshly Given Shop

I’ve been working for a while on new concepts. Because I source my materials in a very, shall we say, unique way, every project requires a fair share of brain power. And yep, a lot of brain juice went into figuring out how to minimize waste and create a bag that you ladies would enjoy. The problem solving is by far my favorite part. Well along side sharing it with you all. Hence why everything is Freshly Given. :-) There were no pre-made patterns or folders of sketches. I have to go with the materials provided me. And trust me, my apt is not for the faint at heart. Ask the hubby.
There are limited quantities. Emphasis on limited. No need to worry about walking in to a room, embarrassed the woman over yonder is carrying the same bag. Plus, even if you did, just flip to the other side and BAAMM, magic.
I love this bag.
