Painted Swift Fox Pouch




August 2012
Price: $125 – available for purchase on Etsy

I started with a lovely, soft swift fox hide which I lined with secondhand fabric for extra strength since it’s an older tan. The front panel of the pouch is reclaimed suede leather from an old jacket. I painted a desert landscape with mountains in the background in acrylics on the leather; the camera had trouble with the detail, and it looks less blended and subtle than it is in person, but the third picture shows some detail nonetheless. The cord and decorative dangles are hand-braided secondhand yarn, and the dangles are further decorated with lovely glass beads in colors to match the painting.
