I grew up on a farm in the Midwest (Missouri).  We were a resourceful family and grew or made a lot of what we needed, so early in my life I learned the joy of "making/creating" things.  Each item is made with love and care, usually with hand stitched details.  My style is both rustic and feminine,  
specializing in leather bags using equestrian components (such as bits, and harness gear),  leather bows, and antique and vintage materials.   We also have a brick and mortar shop "The Bent Tree Gallery" on our farm near Bethany, Mo.  (halfway between Des Moines, Ia. and Kansas City, Mo.).  All the items are displayed in our physical shop and ready for purchase.
