About Us

Chris in WorkshopHandmade in Leather

Leather is a unique medium, requiring special knowledge, tools, and skill. Chris has been creating leatherwork for over thirty-five years. She started Handmade'n Leather in 2001, fulfilling two dreams: to make her living with her art and to operate her own business.

As a sculptor, painter, and mosaic artist, she possesses a creative imagination that translates into elegant handcrafted leather accessories. She studies the world of fashion as well, and makes items to suit a variety of tastes, from western to rock star to goth to punk, and business and casual dress. 

Ed provides technical support and accounting services to the business, and he manages the website.

Chris and Ed have been married since 1996. They live and work in Oregon.
