Gerardo a Fuenzalida
We hand-cut original patterns out of leather upon which we create designs using steel tool stamps, after which we sew them together through punched holes with leather cord. Some are then inlayed with various hand-woven macrame designs integrating a variety of gemstones and fossils using durable polyester cord. In other pieces the gemstones and fossils are inlayed directly into the leather. I use solid metal rivets and buckles, rings, clasps and zippers to complete these functional and often convertible designs. I pay much attention to creating pieces with an assortment of artistically cohesive styles and palettes in attempting to engender an array of feelings in my customers.
I offer a modern interpretation of the craftsman tradition. some pieces have a micro-macrame design that I like to hand-weave.I pay much attention to creating originals patterns with an assortment of artistically cohesive styles attempting to engender an array of feelings by admiring every details.
I create The Leather Vest With Minerals following my original patterns that combine the western style with native tribal designs. The detailed leather lace work piece that is on the upper shoulders and back included a cabochon gemstone that give more characteristics and presence to each vest.
