Totally self-taught in several disciplines: bead work, leather work, costume design, painting and cooking,  my exploration into the history of my environment and community has lead to  developing  this line of handbags and totes with a decidedly Southwestern feel.

 

Scouring local flea markets and cultivating other sources for retired  Ethnic and Navajo textiles, as well as horse tack and all kinds of bits and pieces, “bling“, I call it,  I have created Ooo So Santa Fe.

 

Each bag is one of a kind using every inch of the textiles and every scrap of leather; a functional work of art.
