    Hello everyone! Been more silent than sounding lately, but it's been a busy year. We recently moved from Hawaii to Southern California, and I've been scrambling on many fronts. The last year at my Farmer's market in Hawaii was really good, and so consistent, that I let my website and Etsy store go. Now I have no venue (yet) so I have FINALLY reposted on Etsy. Still need to work on website . I have been trying some new things, but mostly I just have new ideas and no time. I'm hoping that when things settle, I'll do better. If you have a chance check out my Etsy store if you get a chance. I'm going to be adding more as i go along. The worse thing about not having a selling venue, means that I have to stop my purchasing until I turn some things over, but have some really cool things waiting for me right now, so I think I can make it! Here are a couple of my newest things. If you were at the ruckus you probably saw them, but if not here you go! The first necklace is wired on silver and gold filled wire and attached to natural leather. There are 2 Kamoka Farm pearls that dangle at the end (back) of the necklace, the second is a sliding bolo style, and the third and fourth is actually a long (44") single strand of leather with pearls knotted on and can be a necklace, a belt - whatever. Let me know what you think!!!!

    Hi Sheryl - I've been more lurking than posting but love to follow everyone's work. Glad to hear you've made it through your (epic!) move. These are great designs - such a nice balance between the texture of the leather and the glorious colors of the pearls. Wishing you tons of success in finding a new, lucrative venue!

    You sure do get a lot done! This line is really excellent. I love the leather station necklace! And the Belt! And the bracelet! The bolo is great. I wish a guy would wear it! And the first necklace looks so happy, like a bunch of little bells tinkling merrily. How do you do it all? Well, however, you do it, I am glad you do!

    As a consumer (TOO much lately!) I have to say I LOVE Tahitians on leather! Especially the long one with the multiple uses. I think it suits Tahitians very well.......

    Good luck! I think I bought a few loose pearls from you a couple of years ago (on Etsy)........

    Aye, Hester Rotgut, the pearls must be drilled to fit on the leather.

    Do you think it is worth it? I am not buying, just loving the idea. Maybe it should be tried with some freshwaters?

    Well, I've done something similar with freshies for a couple of years, not as exquisite as with the KAMOKA Tahitians, of course! These are dyed, sort of a gray-green color.Name:  IMGP3520_resize.jpg

    Those designs are great! Maybe I should hang on the Tahitians I am not using after I got the Kamoca pearls after all...
