Wolves at the Gate

Wolves at the Gate

I was recently asked to participate in a shoot with Ironwood Wolves, a wonderful company that educates the public about wolves and their importance in ecosystems.

Dentelle Dorée – A Leather Wedding Anniversary

Dentelle Dorée – A Leather Wedding Anniversary

Recently my friend and neighbor, Amanda, told me that she was getting ready to celebrate her “leather anniversary”. I had heard of  tradition of giving one’s spouse gifts made of specific materials depending on how many years the couple has been together, but I didn’t realize there was one wedding anniversary specifically for leather. Depending on which chart you follow,

Back in April, I was awarded an educational grant by the Greater Columbus Arts Council in order to study with one of the premier British embroidery firms, Hand & Lock.

Vampire Queen Corset

Vampire Queen Corset

My client Monica requested her corset be “Gothic in red and black leather”, so we chose the smoothest, satin finish black leather paired with red metallic leather. We added the details of metallic red leather piping and a black beaded Swarovski crystal jewel at the décolleté. I love how the metallic red leather really glows and

Victorian Corset

Victorian Corset

I wanted to share with you this historically inspired Victorian corset that I recently created for a client who does living history/historical reenactment events. Most of the corsets I create for my label Wilde Hunt Corsetry are made out of leather, so it is fun to create something from a completely different time period and to
