Hi, my name is Terry McInerney and I make leather goods.
Leather is a marvelous medium-tough, hardworking and functional but with a softer side; just how I envision my leather work to be.
In making my leather goods, I hand cut, stitch and sometimes dye my leather. I use traditional leather working techniques but with a contemporary feel. I want to put a modern spin on the classic functional leather accessory.
,Working with my hands brings me a sense of accomplishment that I want reflected in my leather work. I am inspired by the traditional leather workers of bygone days. A well used briefcase, a worn out pair of shoes, or a saddle molded to fit perfectly are all inspirations that tell a unique story.
