ABOUT the artist

Jay Davis grew up in an iron yard. At a very young age, she could be found on her parents' salvage yard and iron recycling plant, slinging tires and crushing rims for her allowance money - most of which was immediately spent on handbags. She has always considered herself a tomboy with a penchant for beautiful things.

Her first leather bag was created in an 8th grade history class after a unit on medicine bags, and she began crafting her own bags. Her one-of-a-kind creations began immediately catching the eyes of teachers, classmates and parents, and she had a thriving small business on her hands. Several years later, after an internship with a couture designer in Manhattan, a few years in a costume shop building Elizabethan costumes, Jay now resides in Denver, Colorado, where she enjoys road tripping, rock collecting, vintage hunting, and creating moving pieces of art (which happen to also serve as functional handbags and purses.)

All of Jay's are handmade in Denver, Colorado with locally-sourced materials.
