I'm Olive Parker, a leather artist who owns Montana Leather Designs in Stevensville, MT. Leatherwork and I go way back to the late 70s, when I began to make leather tack for my horses, belts and wallets. I carve, paint, push, mold, stitch and bead on leather to design one of a kind pieces of jewelry and home accents. I also have a line of beaded leather bracelets. I was awarded the People's Choice Award in Jackson Hole, Wyoming in 2012 at the Western Design Conference for hand carved leather jewelry adorned with Montana sapphires set in gold. In September 2018, I received Honorable Mention in the Jewelry Art to Wear category again at the Western Design Conference.
