Primavera Leathers - Evenlight Eagles
I began doing leatherwork in 1988, making sheaths for a knifemaker. I have mainly done one-of-a-kind artisan pieces throughout the years and have recently shifted my focus. I only use free-range deer and elk leather, which means it comes from animals that are legally hunted and used for their meat. These beautiful creatures are wild and free to roam until the moment they are taken and provide a more earth-friendly source of leather.
My 5 year old daughter has greatly influenced my newest work. She's all about rainbows, hearts and flowers. I joke that she must have hit me over the head with a rainbow when I wasn't looking because one snowy day this winter when she was home from school, she sat down to "help mommy make a pocketbook" and the next thing I knew my work was covered in color and hearts and flowers...and my passion for creating it was renewed! My work is full of love and fun.
Life is a journey that is meant to be enjoyed…each and every moment a unique and precious gift...an open door to live in our hearts and create a world that reflects that beauty. I live and love in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with my daughter, Juliet. I give thanks for the opportunity to create my work and share the journey with you.
