I use USA grade leather for belts and bags where we get to select from a variety of earthy colour choices. The belts and bags are then sewn using hand punched holes and sustainably harvested kangaroo lacing which gives superior strength and durability. Copper rivets hold it all together for long lasting strength. I like to find old rings or make them and repurpose old belts, decorating the "tales" of the lacing with found thrift store beads and wildcrafted berries and feathers which can be removed and replaced with your own treasures. I use vegetable tanned leather for all my hand tooled bracelets and journal covers and can incorperate this in the wildcrafting belts also if you would like custom tooling.

These hand crafted leather journal covers can be made to house your favorite note/dairy/sketch book.

Journal covers are made as requested. The covers can be made for any notebook size and style and I can recommend my favourite brands as it is important that the Journals lay flat. I can copy an image that is close to you heart or interpret your needs. These journal covers are made with high quality vegetable tanned leather, kangaroo leather lacing and found/natural beads and feathers. The Journal Covers are made to last forever and is work from my heart space to yours, take many hours and is always a journey. Price begins $125-

I need to have control over how I organise, and it needs to be fluid and I need to write it down, open it up, look at it and basically not have to plug it in. For a long time I have been using a series of mini binders, that can hold a heft of information and still fit in my purse like a well loved book. These binders serve well as bullet journals, day/monthly/yearly planners, materia medica, or recipe journals, and I love the fact that they are flexible - that I can add pages in and take out pages as needed - all without having to get out the bloody phone. The binder itself is a very sturdy reinforced recyclable cardboard, so no plastic! Three ring, 8.5” x 5.5” size, compatible with the host of dividers, photo sleeves, calendar pages etc. The leather covers are made from american vegetable tanned leather, finished with black cottonwood oil and etched (burning in the image) with various designs, the current run being winter trees. They cost $65 empty and $95 with a yearly planner inside. Custom designs are available.

Calling it in. As I have developed and explored my artistry it has become clear to me that it is a relationship with the divine. What that exactly is I couldn’t tell you but I do know that it seems to flow best the more I can step aside. My style, or flavour will always be apparent but often I could not tell you clearly why or where or how the images come, it is more a matter of alignment. And even though the best work arrives when my ego is distracted I cannot deny that there is power in this process and that is what I am passing onto you. The images may or may not be pretty but they do have a purpose and when I use my hands to create and my art to ink on drums I am also calling in.

I buy the frames and skins for the drums from Centralia Fur, an old local company. There are many sizes and animal skins to choose from. therefore the price varies, generally starting from $150 - $300. I am also happy to repair, reskin and paint on a drum supplied to me.

The drums below are 15” 16 sided cedar hoop Horse skin drums and are mushroom themed and cost $225. The forest drum has sold but Cordyceps is still for sale and I’m not surprised - She demands a certain owner as she came to help bring in change, break up old patterns and has an air of chaos that is compelling but requires strength to carry and hold - not everyone’s cup of tea and not everyone can do that kind of work.

I have also been making vests and hoodies with deer skin leather, These tend to be custom as they require a good fit and are also a gift for life, starting at around $300. Please fill out the form or email me at sashasideways@yahoo.com to start the process. The vest pictured below has been sold.

It all started because I got fed up with searching for a bag. I'm a one bag girl (taurus earth) and will love that bag until I completely wear it out (capricorn moon) or it gets misplaced etc or I shift my ego state and the bag stops fitting. I'm also very thrifty so would find myself putting in serious manifestation magic and walking many miles looking for that amazing thrift store find bag. Well somewhere in my mid thirty's it got to the point where the bag just wasn't magically appearing. Not in the pre-made form. So I made one. (Sag Rising). And I fell in love, It was beautiful, perfect and inspiring and then I started making more things - even down to baby booties made from rabbit fur for gifting.
