Turquoise shortie cowboy boots
Shorty ankle boots are what all the celebrities are wearing these days. Diamond 57 we've been recycling the bottoms of the cowboy boots into Shorties since 2002.  I make a bag from the tops of the boots and if the bottoms are in good shape or new boots, I hand lace them with premimum leather lacing  and you get to wear these easy to slip on boots in style! If you need a certain size, give me a hollar!

Love abounds!

Love abounds!

Last weekend I was vending at Thieves Market in Chandler Arizona.  Tom had taken some old boot bottoms and and planted some succlents in them to recycle the boots.  A very sweet, young couple came by, loved the recycled boot and purchased it. Along the way as they were shopping they were telling people about their "recycled boot planter". At one booth they dropped the brochure I gave them. The vendor (we'll call her Jane) picked it up and started reading it. In this brochure I have the story of how Diamond 57 was created. She was touched by the story and came to find me. As we started talking she discovered a cowboy boot bag she loved! "It speaks to me!" she squealed. I am so grateful to be inspired to create works of wonder that spreads such joy. Jane makes beautiful recycled yard, garden and home art reclaimed old wood, antique clocks and more. She told me she was going back to her booth and was going to take the proceeds from her sales to buy the bag.  She returned in a short while and told me she was telling her brother all about the bag (he also creates beautiful works of art by recycling vintage wood and old truck parts). I asked her how sales were, and she said not good but I'm telling everyone about the bag I'm going to buy it when things pick up.  I told her to take the purse to her booth to show her brother, to which she replied with a smirk, "ok, see ya.... in, like....never!" Ha!  She did return with the purse swinging like an old friend on her shoulder.  Gently putting the purse back on it's rustic display she said she'd be back and  may have to take up donations to achieve her goal. She would joke with the good people enjoying the show.  The next day I recieved an email from a delightful angel asking me if I remember the gal that really wanted the cowboy boot bag when she was shopping in my booth. I said, "oh, yes! She's a delightful soul!"  She asked if I would accept her payment of the purse and present it to the "lady" as an anonymous gift? This woman said "I don't know her name, but do you know who I'm talking about?" "Yes, I remember", as disbelief welled up in my heart. Really?? For Real?  She was serious and called me with her payment information and didn't want any recognition for her very kind gesture of love. My life will forever be touched by such generosity and inspiration! 
Tom and I went to see Jane, and I put the bag on her shoulder asking her if she's sure it fits properly. She smiled and said, of course it fits just right!  I said "Well, then, it's yours!"  She was in shock with tears of unbelief mixed with such humility that will be a memory in my mind forever. 
Jane came to me later that day and said "I've always been a giver. I don't know how to react as a reciever." Joy. Pure joy! This is what it feels like to bless others.

Here are some photos of the booties I've made.  When I get some cowboy boots in stock,  the sole's are still in good shape, so I've made them into booties!  They vary in size and some I'm not sure what size they are, so it makes them hard to sell if you can't try them on.  Some I lace the edges, others I line with fur. I sell them for $35.  Email me with your size if you want to know what I have in stock.  I will have some in Las Vegas  (at the National Finals Rodeo) at the Sands Hotel Dec. 2-11th. if you happen to be in the area. For the local folks, you can see them, and try them on at the Expo Center in Portland for America's Largest Christmas Bazaar Nov. 26-28th and Dec. 3-5th.

Brown classic cowboy boot lifestyle

Brown classic cowboy boot lifestyle

brown cowboy bootsI loved the feel and smell of the leather of these cowboy boots.  They evolved into this wonderful bag rich with the classic cowboy lifestyle.  I used a brow band for the handle with horse rein snaps to give it a bit of a jingle. The sterling silver concho on front has a sweet iron background. Purses like this can have multiple handles with the release of the snaps. Photos by Lime Light photography.

Power of the Purse Benefit for Girls, Inc.

TPower of the pursehis purse was inspired with the help of Mike and Amy from the Wolf, 99.5 for Power of the Purse.  We wanted to create a stand out purse that would show off the cowgirl attitude of Reba McIntyre because she autographed this purse.  Lots of bling, spurs, Texas stars, romel horse rein handles are just some of the qualities of this once of a kind show piece.  It sold for $2000 at the benefit.

Additionally, I made this pink purse with pink crystals and 2 handles for Reba to sign also.  I used a horse bit for one interchangable handle and a horse brow band for the other. The quick release of a snap changes from one handle to the other. Also, with pink crystals and lots of silver this is a collector piece as well.Pink cowboy boot purse  Photos by James Colhoff Jr

Sexy Pink with a Horse Bit Handle

Pink cowboy boots bagThis is a great example of a cowboy boot purse with a horse bit handle.  I pad the handle and use fancy snaffle bits.  You will usually find snaps so you can easily switch this horse bit handle for a longer, leather handle.  Pink cowboy boots are hard to find, so let me know if you have some for sale!

Life changes... and so do the boots!

Just when I thought I’d hit the high road and I finally know the direction should go.... the weather changes.  Whirlwinds and big, fat snowflakes redirect my life - my perspective, and give me eyes to see a different, more rewarding path.  I recently worked on a particularly challenging project, thanks to Tim Kelly.  He sent me some old, rough boots to make into a purse for his sweet sister, Pam.  The leather was stiff, folded in funny ways, and oh, those zippers!  Big, thick, cranky zippers.  They were determined to do whatever they wanted.   

But I felt a deep inspiration to work with these old Military boots and help them to realize they now had a new, meaningful mission to carry out.  You see, Tim's dad was a Major in the Air Force and flew the B-58 Hustler (which only had one purpose - to fly twice the speed of sound and carry a Nuclear Bomb).  I understand the planes are as unpredictable as a wild mustang.  The boots had walked on foreign soil, flew countless missions and walked a path of determination and devotion to our country. 

I worked with the boots, stubborn and unforgiving; they did not like the idea of a "purse".  Ok then, I decided I'd call them a "bag"! So much more bold and brave.  They softened up a bit, but those stinkin' zippers were not so cooperative.  I tried a dozen ways to get them to compromise.  Finally, I convinced them to lie quietly, tucked inside the lining, promising them a wonderful adventure about to unfurl.  The dog tags of this uncompromising veteran hang on the laces, as is customary for men at war. The Air Force Major pins are proudly displayed on each side of the bag.   I know the legacy of this Air Force Major, and father, will never be forgotten. As Pam touches the leather, now a little softer, a new perspective and a new mission will carry on.

A lady from Redmond, Oregon sent me her husband's boots after he passed away to make into single boot purses for their daughters.  Once complete she wrote a poem for each asking them to always remember the path their father chose and walk in his footsteps.  

Another woman in Pennsylvania sent me her daughters first pair of boots.  I add pink fringe and a pink belt with lots of bling for the handle.  She now displays it in her room and wears it everywhere with a wonderful story to tell.

One daughter was surprised to get her old boots as a wedding gift!  Her mother brought her old english riding boots to me along with her daughter's horse's bridle complete with brass name plates.  I incorporated all of this to be a custom forever purse worth more to her than any words could express.

Hailey Tate's purseHailey Tate's custom purse made from her dad's boots and tassels from her pony's hair. 

Hailey's dad purchased her first pony when she was just 5 years old.   Together they loved to ride.  Her father passed away unexpectedly when Hailey was 19 years old. He left hailey with all the wonderful memories they'd had riding together and an old pair of rugged boots.  It wasn't long after her father's passing that her beloved pony pass away.  Hailey wanted to preserve the memories of the 2 she loved so dearly.  She sent me her dad's boots and a tassel of her pony's hair.  I made the boots into a purse and had the pony hair braided into a tassel to be displayed on the front of the purse.  This purse will remind Hailey of Happy Trails for a long time to come.

Black leather purse with red and white inlayA Bull Rider in the 60's wore these vintage ACME boots! They were worn out with manure on the heels when I got them. With a lot of love and saddle soap I was able to revive these antique piece to create a wonderful purse that will forever be a favorite. The handle is romel horse hobbles. I love the little cracks in the inlay and the part on top with a scuff possible from the stirrup of his trusty horse.
