CONTACT PENELOPE SHEARD:
Handmade Leather Bags and Accessories
Penelope Jane Sheard is the third generation in a family of highly skilled leather makers. She comes to us having been a member of prestigious designer/maker Guilds.
Penelope returned to her home county of Cornwall in 2016 after over 20 years of living and working in Wales. Specialising in designing and making unlined bags and accessories, she uses the highest quality soft leathers and suedes.
Leather comes in a variety of finishes, textures and colours and Penelope makes use of these variations by designing different styles throughout the year. Pale colours for springtime and grained textured leathers in rich tones for autumn.
Combining simple shape with detail and unusual colour mixes adds interest to her designs. Penelope uses a minimum of metal fittings, preferring to use self-trims or top stitching as decoration.
