Meet Bella Wedig, featured Artisan Goods artist

Bella Wedig opened Force of Habit: Leather Vocation just over a year ago in Trenary, Michigan. She describes the decision to learn leathersmithing on her website, saying "I got started with leatherwork the same way that one opens a bag of chips and 30 minutes later finds the bag empty: too much free time on my hands and nothing else to do. Turns out, I love it!" 

In the four years since she began working with leather, Bella has begun creating a myriad of designs, including handmade leather armor. Her creations are enchanting, which is exactly the feeling we were looking for in our latest collection.

Each of the designs that Bella created for us is made from 100% American materials. This is important because it reduces the carbon footprint of all her designs. Further, she uses an eco-friendly bark solution to tan the leather, forgoing chemicals that can harm the environment.

A fun fact about Bella is that her dad, Dale Wedig, was Beth and Gordon's metalsmithing instructor at Northern Michigan University!

We are so excited about this collaboration. Every piece is absolutely beautiful and the time, effort, and care put into each item are obvious. We hope that you'll stop by the shop to check them out in person!

Twig Branch Ring

Stunning!

I have been watching for an agate to show up with this much copper and when it did I couldn’t say no! This agate is stunning! I have a lot of BMJ pieces and plan to continue to expand my collection!

Love

Absolute in love with my ring. Only reason for four stars is because when I received it, the ring was quiet tarnished looking already. It was a quick fix with the complimentary polishing square and it was shiny again.

Love!

Love my ring! I would love to get your name here in town at our local shops! They would love it! Let me know how I can help advocate for you!

Great ring

I bought this ring as a wedding ring my boo. Amazing quality! I love it.
