Description
All handbags are carved by the artist. Each solid hardwood handbag features beautiful craftsmanship, strict attention to detail, and all original design. Braided leather straps, hidden hinges, and magnetic closures make these handbags very unique with a natural appeal. Some handbags are contoured to the shape of your body, some are carved or burned with primitive motifs, and some use wood and leather combined. Each handbag is signed and dated and comes complete with a beautiful storage bag.
Background
I studied art and woodworking under Professor John McNaughton at the University of Southern Indiana. I have won many awards and schlorships throughout the years including a design and creativity award at the International Woodworkers Fair. For the past 10 years I worked for Karges Furniture, making handcarved furniture while saving enough money to complete my woodshop for the day I could go into business myself. Well that day is here and my business, "Hand Carved Handbags Etc." is off to a great start since it started in the summer of 2004.
