This was a summer of making Good friends.
I met Jan via a convo through my Etsy shop. She is a huge follower, buyer and seller of the famed Hermes scarfs that have Wall Street bank execs. lining up on their lunch breaks waiting to buy.
Prior to getting an education on the fashion sect from Jan I had never heard of the Hermes line. *red faced*
Jan lives in New York city as well as operates her own website selling Hermes products which include jewelry, leather bags and scarves.
As the leader of a group called "THG" Jan wanted to design a tag that members could carry, on their person, as a quick representation of the following.
My Goode friend convo'd me with various ideas as to what she had in mind and after many ideas passing back and forth in emails this is what we came up with originally.
She already had the authentic Hermes name ribbon and was going to attach it to the tags I made which were made of thick leather and dyed in an acorn colour that closely represented the Hermes design.
A few weeks later Jan contacted me again and asked if I could incorporate a section of authentic Hermes crocodile leather into my tags. This is what I was able to do. She went with a natural dye instead of the acorn so as not to offset the crocodile leather.
Although this type of item is far removed from my daily life, Jan in her very gracious and unassuming manner, invited me as an honorary member of the "THG".
Do visit her website at It's all Goode.
P.S. I would like to ask for prayers for Jan's dear husband, Gus, as he has been battling cancer and could use all our prayers. God Bless!!
