One of the very first things that I made when I started Moxie & Oliver in 2004 was a little leather pouch. The way that I constructed this first pouch made it easy to open, easy to stuff full, and perfect for using as a little clutch. I still use this first pouch (and it looks great!), but I wanted to make an option with a little more organizational power, so I created the Lucky Wristlet Wallet. Or, if you're in our studio we just call it a "pouch wallet". The Lucky Wristlet Wallet is constructed entirely from full-grain vegetable tanned leather - each piece hand cut, branded, painted, dyed and stitched in my studio. The piece has a double snap closure and a tab on the back that the wristlet strap attaches to (strap not pictured). There are four card slots inside and a large slot along the back to use for cash and/or your phone! It is big enough to fit the largest smartphones (iPhone 6+ fits). The colors in this piece are white, yellow, green and antique black and it has silver hardware. Since each piece is hand dyed and leather is a natural material some variation in the color is to be expected. Measures approximately 8" wide by 3" tall. I am happy to do custom orders - just ask!
I'm a full-time leathercraft artist, mother, and author of "Leathercrafted." I'm a certified leathercraft master. I started Moxie & Oliver in 2014 out of a desire to create leather accessories that were as durable as they were beautiful. After eleven years making leather goods, and with the original pieces still in use (and looking amazing), I have accomplished that and so much more. Teaching leathercraft classes out of my studio allows me to share my love of the craft, my knowledge of the process and history, and my original techniques for adding pattern and color, with interested students. Classes are open to anyone age 12 and older (under 18 must be accompanied by an adult taking a class at the same time). My unique process allows anyone, artistic background or not, to be able to create a beautiful, functional, leather good in an afternoon, a day or a weekend. Come with an open mind and a rough idea of what you'd like to accomplish - with your inspiration and my guidance, YOU will make something wonderful!
