Great things at Tom Taylor.

On one of my journeys to Santa Fe, I went to Tom Taylor shop in the La Fonda hotel. There you can find a slew of fine quality leather belts, sterling silver jewelry, buckles out of sterling silver, stainless steel and titanium. Along with many other fine quality leather goods.  While there we (Philip and I) chatted about the new and exciting items I will be making for them, to have in the shop during the Santa Fe Indian Market festival. Some of the items they will have but not limited to: new earrings , M&M pendents, Dogtags and some inlayed buckles.. As always I had a great time talking shop with Philip and Kim Spiers. During my visit Jessica, employee  for Tom Taylor took that opportunity to snap a few pictures of me in front of the shop. We had fun laughing on San Francisco street while people passed by wondering about the photos being taken.

They will be hosting the “Black Jade and Diamonds” cuff and the “Coral, Lone Mtn turquoise and Diamond” inlayed bracelet for a limited time. If you are in Santa Fe stop on by to chat and see what new items adorn their shop @ 108 East San Francisco Street.

Thanks to everyone at Tom Taylors..

Congratulations to the Award winners, as well as all who participated.. As for myself, I didn’t make it the Preview night to see the award winners. I’m sure it was awesome… but I did get the good news from my brother Pat on some of the winners.
