Summit Shaka Leathercrafts
Leather & Antler Jewelry
At the top of a cliff or mountain, I throw a Shaka!
"Shaka" is used to convey the "Aloha Spirit and is Hawaii's most well-known hand gesture. An expression of friendly intent often used to express "Howzit, Thanks or Right On."
Born and raised in Hawaii, I now reside on the east coast USA. I love ice climbing, rock climbing, crack climbing, skiing, winter hiking, and golf. Growing up in Hawaii I spent all my time outdoors. I totally love being outdoors and the creations in my store reflect that.
About My Leather and Antler Jewelry:
I make leather and antler jewelry in my home studio. For leather jewelry, I use leather tools including stamps, a hammer, carving knife, snaps, rivets, stains, dye, and paints. For antler jewelry, I use jewelry making tools including various jewelry pliers, wire, and wire cutters.
All my leather jewelry is produced from the leather byproducts of the USA's dairy and beef industries. All my antler jewelry is produced from the USA naturally shed Elk or Deer antlers. Genuine Turquoise is used - I only source turquoise from USA turquoise mines.
About My Rock & Fossil Jewelry Pieces:
As an avid rock and ice climber, I'm drawn to unusual and interesting stones and fossils. The pieces I use in my work come from various sources. Sometimes I purchase beautifully cut and polished pieces from several different reputable resources. But I also love and purchase rough and unpolished pieces. I have also found many beautiful rocks while out rock climbing and hiking.
