Montana Leather Designs

Montana Leather Designs is a 100% made in Montana business in the Bitterroot Valley south of Missoula. I am Olive Parker, a leather artist who began working with leather to make tack for my horses.  Over the years (more than 40 of them!) I continue to experiement with new techniques and methods for leather working,  adding color and gemstones to to add that unique touch to each piece.  I may be best known for delicate carved leather feather jewelry sometimes accented with Montana sapphires mined in Philipsburg, MT, or other semi precious stones.  The work I am most proud of is a 30' long leather mural that is installed above the Silver Dollar Bar inside the Wort Hotel in Jackson, Wyoming. In addition to attending art festivals in the Rocky Mountains, my line of leather jewelry is sold in boutiques and galleries and National Park gift shops across the US.
