The Flashback Friday series is all about showing products that were made many years ago.  The jewelry line is my newest collection, so I have no old products to show

Loons are one of the birds that inspired this collection and is one that is especially dear to my heart.  Shown below: a real loon photo, the tennis bag with a loon I made for my Dad in 1980, and the more recent loon jewelry set shown with the carved wooden loon I had given to my Mom many years ago.

Author Bio

Jan Hibbard was born and raised in Wakefield, Mass. My love of animals and my interest in crafts developed as a child. My journey with leather began 42 years ago as I working on my teaching degree in Boston. Barnes & Noble opened in downtown Boston and I found a book on leatherwork. It mentioned 2 leather companies located in Boston. I went there the next day and I purchased my first hide of leather and a few tools. I made a leather vest which I still wear today. My LOVE of leather was born and it continues to grow.
