And like the creation of diamonds, it is the combination of pressure and time that can create such glorious beauty in phenomenal detail - if one has the strength and patience to harness it.  And the inspiration of some of the hand tooled leather pieces come from those whom have done some of the hardest time that there is to be done -both in the streets and behind bars.

It is from the fires of time and pain that some of these first pieces of leather were honed into belts, wallets, purses - and more - and then donated to charities or sent to family friends or - by extension- complete strangers.
