Wendolin Mercado, Leather & Jewelry Designer
One of the things I love most about working with natural materials is that they require your attention. They are unique and have their own personalities just like people. No two pieces of sea glass are exactly the same, a buffalo hide changes from one inch to the next and so on and so on. Glass, leather, feathers, stones, crystals, shells, they all demand to be dealt with as individuals… I respect that.
