I saw the diary before Christmas, and fell in love with the idea of having one with my name on it. Didn't get it. In my search for tooled leather, I found the shoes, which aren't my size.

I've collected the pictures over the last few months, mainly to illustrate the western/gothic trend for details & accessories that feel talismanic, like a cult for shamans, trinkets and totems.

The patterns remind me of guipure embroidery and vintage lace, and it works amazingly in surprising places (like the shoes). The concept of taking a natural material and turning it into something crafted and personalised is very timely.

Mostly I just want something with my name on.
