Inspired by the beautiful leatherwork from Mexico many years ago, Jen Laursen went on a quest to teach herself this time-honored tradition. She devoured old manuals, youtube videos, and used the tried and true method of trial and error.
Today, she makes handmade accessories, still learning, and perfecting her craft everyday, and she loves every minute of it! Each piece is made solely by Jen in her studio in Vallejo, CA., where she also teaches private lessons and group workshops. You can catch her teaching in San Francisco at Workshop SF and in El Cerrito at Handcraft Studio School.
Jen's work is inspired by the world around her and is constantly evolving, so you can always expect something new.
