Hi there! My name is Rachael
I'm a Maryland girl who moved West with my family for my husbands job in January 2017.
Before we moved to Colorado I was a preschool teacher in Maryland. One of the awesome Moms at school bought me a pair of leather earrings as a teacher gift and I was hooked. I loved wearing them, felt fabulous when I did, and couldn't believe how light weight they were. They were statement earrings that I could hardly feel in my ears.
I quickly realized I needed more. I wanted more colors, more styles, and more sizes.
Fast forward to this past fall, I started making the earrings myself and set up shop at my dining room table.
I have always loved fashion and accessories. I love being a little different and having some zing in my wardrobe. Put that together with the fact that I love being crafty and making things for other people, it's a perfect fit.
Downtown Leather Co was born.
I'm a Mom of 2 teenage boys, 17 & 16. We have (2) 95 lb Old English Bulldogs, Hurley & Otis, and I'm positive you will see them both in my photos.
Thank you for stopping by,
I hope you love DLC earrings as much as I do.
Cheers! Rachael *I am wearing Classic 2.5" Saffiano Pink*
If you Love your DLC earrings and I hope you do, Please post a review on my Facebook page :) Thank you!
All Sales are Final, however , If you are ever not completely satisfied with your purchase of any DLC product, please Contact me and I will do everything I can to make it right.
In the past I never actually used the little rubber stoppers that came with earrings, but now I do. Rubber Stoppers are a must with DLC earrings. Please keep them on to keep your earrings safe. I recently forgot to put the stoppers on and found myself standing at Costco customer service drawing a picture of the earring I lost :(
We've all heard it before... Put your earrings on last after using makeup, hairspray, & perfume. This is very true. Leather & Cork will last forever if you take good care of them. Do not take your earrings for a dip. They will not like the water at all.
Please store your DLC earrings flat. Lay them in your jewelry box, on a tray, or you can even hang them. I have a 12 x 12 framed box w chicken wire from Home Goods that I keep my collection hanging from.
Unfortunately you can't buy just one. 2 reasons. 1. I may not have that exact leather/cork anymore. 2.Because the leather/cork is so different from cut to cut and hide to hide it would be almost impossible to match it up.
The color and pattern variations, as well as slight shedding, are natural characteristics of genuine calf hair. Please take care to avoid excessive abrasion. Be very gentle when taking them in and out.
